    • Good morning I would like the opportunitie to participate and apply for this basketball scholarship I’m currently attending St.Clair Community college on this year is my sophmore year there, and on the basketball team.

    • There are not many basketball scholarships out there, but I will take a look and try to post some sport scholarships very soon!

  1. I am interested in scholarships for graduate school. Any suggestions? Thanks

    • Many of the scholarships I post are for undergraduate and graduate students. However, I also recommend you sign up with one of the scholarship search sites like Fastweb (https://www.fastweb.com/). When you create an account, you can list yourself as a graduate student and they will notify you of all of the scholarships in which you might qualify.

    • There are some scholarships out there for baseball, besides athletic scholarships directly from the institutions. There have been quite a few students asking about sports scholarship (like below), so I’ll be putting together a list of scholarships for sports sometime this week – follow my blog to be notified when it is available.

    • There are some scholarships out there for volleyball, besides athletic scholarships directly from the institutions. There have been quite a few students asking about sports scholarship (like above), so I’ll be putting together a list of scholarships for sports sometime this week – follow my blog to be notified when it is available.

  2. I am interested in scholarships for seniors in high school wanting to take classes to be a science teacher.?

    • Many of the scholarships I post are for high school seniors. Specifically for teachers – I am thinking about putting together a list for future educators very soon (in the next few weeks) – stay tuned 🙂

  3. Thank you so much for your guidance in helping me apply for such amazing scholarship opportunities!

  4. Are there scholarships for international students? I am from Kenya. thanks…. Essy.

  5. I was wondering are any scholarships for grad students and education?

  6. Will there be any dance (band or dance company ) scholarships m

  7. I will be receiving my Associates Degree in Recording Engineering my GPA is only 2.4, in the fall I will be returning for my Bachelors in Music Production, I will be turning 25 and a minority are there any scholarships you recommend.

  8. Are there any scholarships for dependents of a single family home?

  9. I have two lovely daughters who have GPAs of 3.75 or higher at their respective universities. They apply for scholarships but have been unsuccessful thus far. Any suggestions or tips on increasing their chances? They do not qualify for any other financial aid other than loans.

  10. Are there any scholarships for female minorities going into the STEM field?

  11. Are there any MMA (Mixed Martial Arts)/ Karate/ Black Belt scholarships that you know of? Thank you in advance.

  12. Are there any scholarships out there for high school seniors that would like to pursue a career in Mass Communication & Journalism?

    • Hi Michelle. I haven’t put together a scholarship list yet for Mass Communication and/or Journalism, but there are scholarships out there. Sign up with some of the scholarship search sites and possibly check with the school newspaper advisor – they may have a list of scholarships for students planning on majoring in Journalism.

      • Thank you so much! You are very helpful. I have applied to many scholarships thanks to you. You are such a blessing! 🙂 Take care and keep up the great work!

  13. Are there any scholarships available for single moms? I have a 17 year old daughter who will be attending college next year. Thank you in advance for your help! it is greatly appreciated!

    • There are probably some scholarships for students with single parents, but I do not have a list of them. Have your daughter sign up with one of the scholarship search sites.

    • I believe there are some scholarships out there for online college students, but I don’t know how many. Many scholarships do not specify that students need to be attending a physical college – many just say students must be enrolled in a degree program. Most online college students are enrolled in a degree program, just like students who are physically attending classes. Apply for those scholarships if you meet the other qualifications.

  15. Are there any scholarships for students wanting to be sign language interpreters or studying ASL?

    • I have not seen any scholarships specifically for students studying ASL. I recommend checking with your ASL teachers, as well as the ASL department of the college you are considering. Scholarship providers that provide scholarships for students applying ASL will probably notify ASL teachers and professors since it is such a specialized field. Good luck!

  17. I am looking for scholarships for Archery and someone with Dyslexia. Do you have any information?

    • I haven’t seen many scholarships for archery, but there are some. Check out the National Field Archery Foundation Scholarship (https://www.nfaausa.com/scholarships). As for scholarships for people with dyslexia, there are a lot more than archery. I am planning on putting a list together for students with learning disabilities. In the meantime, just do a simple search of “scholarships for students with learning disabilities.”

  18. I would like to thank you so much for this article!!
    I have applied to about 100 scholarships, but have only won one so far. I was wondering if there are any scholarships that just look at merit?
    Thank you!!

    • Hi Maryam. The only pure merit scholarships are probably only found at college and universities that offer merit scholarships. For private scholarships that have a limited number of scholarships, they usually have to look for more than just merit. Why? What would they do if 100 students applied with 4.0 GPAs and only 5 scholarships to award? They’ll have to add other criteria because although it would be nice to give it to everyone, the funds probably are not there.

      • Thank you so much! I will look into other scholarships!

  19. Pingback: #College #scholarship ideas—–> http:/ | Life Stage Wellness

  20. I am a 53 year old African-American female who is ready to go back to school. Most of the scholarship i see are mainly for seniors up to 24. Is there any available scholarships for my age group?

    • There are not as many scholarships out there for older/non-traditional students, but they are there. I have not put together a list yet, but hope to in the future. In the meantime, I would recommend creating a profile at Fastweb. They will notify you of the scholarships in their database in which you might meet the qualifications.

  21. in need of a scholarship i will be attending Central Penn in October any thing basic ?

    • Congratulations on attending Central Penn. There are quite a few scholarships out there, but unfortunately you cannot guarantee you will win the scholarships. Check out all of my scholarship lists. In addition, talk to Central Penn’s financial aid office to see if they have any scholarships specifically for their students. In addition, if you are short, let them know about your circumstances and they may be able to help you. Good luck!
