Applying for scholarships can be a lot of work. However, it can pay off. If you spend two hours applying for one scholarship and it leads to a $100 scholarship, you just paid yourself $50 for each hour of work you put into that application.
The following are a few places to start but there are many scholarship websites and databases available. Remember, students should never have to pay money to access scholarship opportunities.
- Scholarships available in the Transfer Center
- Scholarships available at Ohlone College
- Scholarships by Institution
- Scholarships based on Fields of Study
- Scholarships for Diverse Populations
- General Scholarship Search Websites
Here are a few scholarship application resources and tips:
