Scholarships can be a very big financial support.
Outside Scholarships range from service based, project based, etc. and their applications can be as short as writing an essay to compiling a packet with essays and letters of recommendations. Some have continuous deadlines while many are once a year.
Please check continuously on Outside Scholarship Search to see which scholarships are available and which to apply to.
Are you looking for more scholarship resources? If yes, then check out Scholarship Connection for scholarship opportunities funded outside of the university.
Scholarship Connection is Berkeley's clearinghouse for information on scholarships that are funded by sources outside the University. The Scholarship Connection website is maintained by the Office of Undergraduate Research and Prestigious Scholarships (OUR). They receive hundreds of scholarship notices each year. Competition for these awards may be local, national, or international in scope, and scholarship deadlines and requirements vary.
