Scholarships for General Purpose
Reader, if you thought I was kidding about the types of scholarships available for anyone to use, below I have provided a few examples of awards given.
Most of these awards are:
- Not based on merit
- Not based on need
- Not based on association
- You do not need to be an athlete
- You do not need stellar grades. In fact, our experience has been that for most of these awards, you are not asked to provide report cards to be a recipient.
- No financial documentation is requested to get these awards.
It is possible to use the following awards to supplement your tuition. However, the purpose of these scholarships is to help with everyday expenses the student encounters.
Some examples are provided below for your evaluation.
These examples were pulled from The Ultimate Scholarship Book 2020.
Please click on the name of the Scholarship to be rerouted to the website where more information will be provided for your examination. The names of the awards were turned into hyperlinks thanks to Patty L. Fletcher and Casey Matthews.
Purpose: College or graduate school expenses
Purpose: College expenses
This amount is awarded to its recipient once per month.
No essay required.
Amount: $500 to $3,000
Purpose: Helping adult learners with tuition
The awards above are only a small sample of what is available on the internet and the books we mention below.
The Ultimate Scholarship Book 2020
This book has awards for students in all walks of life. These scholarships are broken down in categories such as ethnicity, resident state, state the college resides in, your major, your minor, and miscellaneous items such as your height.
We suggest you click on the name of the awards above to activate the link.
Then, send the committee an email with the following questions:
- What is the purpose of this scholarship?
- Who is eligible?
- Who is the target applicant?
- What is the amount?
- Is this award renewable?
- How many awards are given?
- What is the deadline?
- How does one apply for this award?
Apply to each scholarship that pertains to you.
List scholarships in order of deadlines.
Note: If the award is fitting to your situation, by all means, ask for an application in your email.
Scholarships for “C” Students
This book describes how a “C” student like Felicia Hatcher got into college, paid for, and finished her degree without paying one red cent out of pocket.
Good Scholarships for Good Students
This book was written for the student with straight A’s, the student endowed with athletic ability, or the student that has excelled in a certain field of study.
This book is full of awards that provide the proverbial “full ride.” You will find scholarships to study abroad, for oceanic study, and all types of research.
In some cases, the scholarship committee will award the students with a stipend to spend as they please. To add icing on the cake, some of these research activities have paid internship programs for the better student.
It gets even better.
A student that finds themselves in such a coveted position may also get a job at the end of the study.
We ask you again, why would you want to take tuition loans that will bind you, possibly for the rest of your life, when you can get paid to get your education?
Below you will find fifty scholarship awards given for general purpose. Each award is worth $1000.
The names of each scholarship has been turned into a hyper link for your convenience. Follow each link, send the award committee the list of questions bulleted above. Apply to each award that will serve your purpose.
