  1. Thank you so much! Your blog is honestly more helpful than all of the scholarship databases combined!

  2. How come no one never follow-up stating whether you got the scholarship or not my son and I applied for several scholarships back in August through November and haven’t heard back from neither of them I understand the need for money is needed for a lot of people but a reply yes or no would be great thanks

    • It is unfortunate that some scholarships do not notify everyone who applied of their decisions. Some provide the date they will make their decision and will post the results on their websites. In addition, students can always contact the scholarship provider to ask about the decisions.

    • I just asked the same question today. The kids spend so much time writing so many essays it would be great if they received some kind of feedback.

      • It really is unfortunate that many scholarship providers do not notify the students who did not get the scholarship. I really wish that they would let students know. As for feedback, that would be even more amazing. Unfortunately some scholarships get so many applicants that they wouldn’t be able to respond to all of them with feedback.

  5. I AM SEEKING A SCHOLARSHIP FOR A ADULT LEARNER NO DEGREE FIELD. ANY IDEAS PLEASE FORWARD TO AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. WINDOW OF OPPORTUNITY CLOSING

    • Unfortunately I have not put together a list of scholarships for adult learners yet. In the meantime, I recommend checking out the scholarship search sites – they have a lot more resources than me and have probably compiled lists for adult learners.

  6. i am currently a student at Keiser University my field of study is Hospitality,I am seeking a scholarship so that I can earn my Associate Degree in Arts, Why is their an age limit for most of the funding, I find this discriminating, A student is a student no matter what their age,

    • There…not their. Continue looking. Hopefully you will find some assistance. Keep the faith!

    • I am not sure why many scholarships choose to have age limits, but unfortunately they do. Since the scholarship provider is providing this free money, they can choose whatever eligibility requirements they want.

  7. Just a note: the two scholarships you have listed for Richie’s Spirit Foundation are the same scholarship

  8. Do you have any leads about applications for scholarships for graduate school? I am trying to help a woman age 45 starting graduate school but all the things we find focus on undergraduates.

  9. My daughter has won two big scholarships so far- both found on your website! We are eternally grateful!😊

  10. Are there fellowships, grants and or scholarships available for PhD students. Background: Modern American History, with a Minor in Public History and Certificate in Gender Studies!
