School Scholarships available for students in US & Canada:
scholarships listed on this website are currently available for high
school students in the U.S. By browsing through the main pages of our
site (see top left corner), organized according to the grade level in
high school, you will notice that there are many scholarships available
for high school freshman, sophomores and juniors, as well as seniors;
that is, if you were one of those students thinking that you need to
wait until the senior year to apply for scholarships, you are wrong! So
start now. The latest issue of the National Postsecondary Student Aid Study (NPSAS) (Radwin et
al., 2013)¹ and the National Center for Education Statistics
(NCES) (Hussar & Bailey, 2011)², both conducted by the US
of Education indicate, in no unclear terms, that though there are fewer scholarships
available for students before the senior year, since there are also
much fewer students applying for these, your chances of landing on a
scholarship as a freshman, sophomore or junior are much higher.
Most scholarships have some quotas specifically for freshman,
sophomore and junior students, and hardly anyone applies for these.
Thus, start early, and increase your chances browsing through the scholarships offered on our pages.
Though most scholarships listed on
our pages are college scholarships specifically for high school
students, some are also for middle school students or high school
graduates planning to enroll in a college or university.
some scholarships are specifically for public schools or private or
parochial schools, most are for students in any type of high school
(but mostly for those planning to go to a college or university). You
can navigate through the site by clicking on the buttons on the left
hand side. If you have any suggestions or comments or want us to add a
scholarship or financial aid resource for high school students, please
e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We regularly update our pages/scholarships listings with new
scholarships based on the emails we receive from scholarship providers.
scholarships currently listed on our pages are valid for 2014 and 2015.
on your interests, you can also visit our other pages that are not
directly related to high school students, such as those on middle school scholarships and elementary school scholarships.
If, on the other hand, you are looking for scholarships to attend a
private high school (i.e. not college or university), then, visit our
new page on this here.
