Offices Apply for Scholarships
The Marlboro College Financial Aid office encourages students to search for scholarships. Scholarship sites should be free to apply; if you are asked to pay a fee to apply our recommendation is to exit the site immediately. Some websites on our list may have not been previewed by the Financial Aid office. Please use your good judgment.
If you have not contacted your state agency on higher education about a state grant or scholarship, we recommend that you do so. In most states your FAFSA is automatically forwarded to your home state but supplemental applications may be needed to be considered for state grants and other scholarships. Look for application dates and respond to any follow up information your state agency may request.
Students obtain most of their scholarships by looking close to home. Our recommendation is to call or visit any club, group, organization, church, bank (call all banks, even if you are not doing business with them), business or any other affiliation that you, your parents, relatives, etc. have in your home area. We suggest you call and ask if the organization offers scholarships to undergraduate students. If they tell you no, thank them and move on to your next call. You may be surprised at the results. Good luck!
Some websites listed below may be scholarship search engines. We refer to them as scholarship clearinghouses. Many of these sites will ask a range of questions. The reason is so to determine if you could be a match with the scholarship foundations that they work with. If you are found to be a preliminary match you will be contacted by the scholarship foundation. They may ask you to submit their own application, to submit an essay that you have written, or to answer some questions in a paragraph format. Each foundation has their own way of processing scholarships.
