The Office of Financial Assistance has created this page to assist you in locating outside scholarships. Drew does not guarantee the availability or fairness of administration of these scholarships. Students pursue them at their own risk. It is the student’s responsibility to obtain the necessary materials, complete applications, and submit them directly to the sponsoring organization for review and fund distribution. You may be eligible for an outside award from a variety of sources including employers, unions, professional organizations, the military, community, religious, and special interest groups.
Drew recommends that you avoid any scholarship offer that requires you to pay a fee, attend a seminar, or claims a guarantee. Also, be cautious should a program request personal information such as bank account, credit card or Social Security numbers. Visit the Federal Trade Commission to learn more about scholarship fraud.
There are dozens of free, secure, scholarship search engines dedicated to locating outside scholarships. In addition to conducting your own search, the following are good starting points:
- FastWeb Scholarship Search
- AAUW Madison Branch
- American Association of University Women
- Coca-Cola Scholarships
- Peterson’s Scholarship Central
- Gates Millennium Scholarships
- Hispanic Scholarship Fund
- Ron Brown Scholar Program
- Scholarships for Hispanics
- Scholarship Hunter
- United Methodist Higher Education Foundation
- United Methodist General Board of Higher Education and Ministry
Students are encouraged to research and apply for additional resources to assist with college expenses. Please remember that awards may affect your need-based assistance. We encourage you to contact our office to confer with your financial aid counselor about how a particular award may affect your aid. In addition, please contact us upon receipt of any outside awards or if you have any questions regarding these scholarships.
