Academic College Scholarships

Academic college scholarships are based primarily on scholastic performance.

Award values range from $700 to $2,500 per academic year. Awarding for both first-year and continuing students usually begins as early as December and continues throughout the year. Scholarship funds for first-year students are limited for some academic colleges.
