Outside Scholarships

The Financial Aid Office encourages students to seek outside scholarships. In an effort to assist students with this task we have provided these online resources. While these search engines and resources are easy to use, your financial aid officer is also here to assist you with any questions that you might have along the way.

The databases listed here can help you find scholarships based on your ethnicity, academic profile, interests, and other qualities. Scholarship amounts will vary from a few hundred dollars to several thousand dollars. Even the smallest scholarship can help you to borrow less, and ease the burden of monthly loan payments when you graduate.

To help supplement these resources, we also have limited information on specific scholarships in Student Financial Services. When seeking funding from outside sources, we recommend using several different sources as not all databases have the same information.

At Simmons we always apply your outside scholarship to your unmet need. If your need is already met we pledge to use additional resources to reduce loans first, and then self-help awards like work-study, before reducing institutional funding. Your aid officer can provide more information about how outside scholarships will fit into your financial aid award.
