External Scholarship Opportunities

The search for scholarships can often be a difficult, frustrating and daunting task; however, with some examples of scholarships and a few tips on searching, the task can be made easier. Below are numerous resources for current college and high school students. Before beginning their search, students should read through a few helpful tips from scholarship expert, and publisher of Fastweb and Finaid.org, Mark Kantrowitz. The following is just a few of the tips from his book, "Secrets to Winning a Scholarship":

  • The sooner students start their scholarship search, the better.
  • Students should look at the dates the scholarships are due and their value when prioritizing which applications they have to complete.
  • Students should check to see if they have any unprofessional material on any websites. If so, they should quickly remove it before applying to any scholarships.
  • Proofread and edit a printed copy of the application before submitting.

The LSA Scholarship Office does not provide scholarships for non-green card international students. Here is a link to a resource guide for international student funding that was created by the University of Michigan Library. It should also be noted that Departmental scholarships (below) may not have citizenship restrictions.
