Scholarship Information

Nearly 100 scholarship funds are available through our online application system, AwardSpring. Graduating seniors, fifth year students, continuing education, and non-traditional returning students are welcome to apply. Students attending college, university, trade, or vocational school could be eligible for the funds. There is one application and based on the fund requirements, you will see which scholarships you qualify for after submitting. Instructions for the 2022 scholarship process can be found here!
