How to Find Scholarships Outside of IW Online

As the higher education demographic has shifted to include more adult learners scholarship opportunities for nontraditional students have increased. Scholarship deadlines depend on many factors and may be announced year-round or several months before the deadline. The best time to look for scholarships is early and now. Start your scholarship search with organizations in your local area, such as:

  • your employer
  • chamber of commerce
  • private organizations
  • professional associations
  • career support services

You can also search for scholarships online. Like grants, scholarships do not need to be repaid, so you should be wary of any scholarship application that requires a fee. These scholarship search engines can help you find scholarships for which you are eligible.

Scholarship search engines help you find scholarships by allowing you to enter specific criteria such as age, residence state or other personal attributes. Some search engines like FastWeb may require you to create a profile for this information. Think about your background and include characteristics that apply to you during your scholarship search, especially if you are searching for local opportunities.
