Undergraduate External Scholarships
Many students receive scholarship assistance through private organizations
which include schools, businesses, civic groups and churches. While most
sources of such awards are found in the students local community, some
are regional or even national in scope. We encourage students to seek out
such additional sources of assistance, and information is usually available
from high school counselors. Another source of such information can be
found on-line at www.fastweb.com. Awards received from private
sources in excess of $100 are required to be reported to Student Financial
Services, though in almost all cases such awards do not affect the gift
assistance previously awarded to students.
