Scholarship Schemes

There are scholarships for everyone. Many community groups, foundations, religious organizations and employers offer scholarships. Scholarships are generally based on your academic record, but are sometimes based upon demonstrated financial need, or both. You may need to submit applications, write letters and essays or be interviewed as part of the scholarship application process, so start your research early. Keep in mind that being eligible for a scholarship doesn't guarantee you'll receive one.
