Scholarships can come from sources such as private foundations, local companies, and financial institutions.
Many high schools have resources available to find these outside sources, as do state college grant agencies. Talk to your high school counselor or advisor to get started.
Marlboro recommends you call or visit any club, group, organization, church, bank, 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!

All scholarships and state grants are integrated into a student’s financial aid package. If you are receiving an outside scholarship or grant please provide the financial aid office with a copy of your scholarship letter and/or check.
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.
