EXTERNAL SCHOLARSHIP OPPORTUNITIES

You may be eligible for a specific scholarship or grant from an outside organization. Some sources to explore are employers, unions, professional organizations, community and special interest groups. Usually these are one-time awards given to high school graduates who have received them on the basis of academic achievement, though some have other criteria and some are renewable. If you are receiving outside scholarships in addition to federal sources of aid, you are required (by federal law) to report these scholarships to the Office of Financial Aid.
