SCHOLARSHIPS

Online college scholarships are generally more difficult to find than scholarships for on-campus universities.  Nevertheless, it is possible to get scholarships for online colleges. Read more below:

Online College Scholarships: Online college Financial Aid:

Online college scholarships are more difficult to obtain than scholarships aimed for students at on-campus colleges and universities.  Nevertheless, it doesn't mean that no scholarships are available for online college students.  In general, it could be stated that there are three types of free scholarships and financial aid that an online college student could get. 

 

One, there is the scholarships provided by the student's institution.  So check out the online universities list we provide on this page, so that you could see which of those colleges provide funding or grants for their students. More often than not, you will see that some online universities provide merit based scholarships and financial aid to their students.  For these, you will generally need to have good academic success, especially in terms of your high school grades.  DeVry University, for example, provides its new students scholarships if they meet certain criteria.  They have a $75 scholarships program by which they award students scholarships from $1000 to $1500 in value every semester.  DeVry is, of course, one example. Most online colleges in our list provide scholarships of various types to their students.

 

Two, there are the scholarships that are specifically for online college students.  There is, for example, a recently announced scholarship called "Where Learning Begins" which provides scholarships to women throughout the United States of age 21 and above who are interested in or are currently enrolled at an accredited online college or university.  These scholarships are $1500 per student.  Again, this is only one example; there are several other scholarships that are aimed specifically for online college students, though they are not as many, in number, as the scholarships that are aimed to on-campus (offline) college and university students.

 

Third, there are the scholarships that are aimed to both offline and online college students alike, such that online college students can also get use of them.  These scholarships do not usually specify what type of college or university (i.e. online or offline) an applicant must be going to.  They will usually only specify other criteria, such as high school grades or GPA in the case of merit-based scholarships or other documentation in the case of need-based scholarships.  Scholarships that are aimed to minority students could also be available, such as African American scholarships, Native American scholarships, and such.  Two websites give a comprehensive list of American scholarships and Canadian scholarships.  The former could be especially useful if you are currently a high school student or if you recently graduated from high school, though they list scholarship resources for those who do not fit in these groups, too.  You might want to browse through each scholarship source and see which ones apply to you, or which ones provide scholarships for online colleges, too. Note finally that some of the scholarships are specifically for certain types of students, such as undergraduate or graduate students or students in certain fields such as engineering, law, education, business (MBA, BBA, etc), arts, sciences, and so on.
