There is information about an extensive array of external scholarships on the Internet. Students may search for scholarships online by using such keywords as graduate scholarships, fellowships, or financial aid. Some sites allow registration that will report scholarships fitting a student's profile. Searching the Internet for scholarships is free; check with the Office of Scholarships before contacting any external scholarship agency that is requesting a fee for its services.
In addition to the Internet, external scholarships may be located through places of employment, religious organizations, community, and civic organizations, and libraries.
Donors of external scholarships should be instructed to send checks to the Office of Scholarships. Checks should include the name of the scholarship, the term(s) for which the award is made, the student's complete legal name and student identification number. If the donor does not provide instructions otherwise, the amount of the scholarship will be divided and applied to the student's account equally for the fall and spring semesters.
