A Guide to Scholarships

Scholarships are a great way to get assistance with college expenses.  Aultman College has many Endowed & Gifted Scholarships available each year.  All scholarships are advertised as they become available. Information and applications are posted on the College website and WiseLine. Scholarships are divided between fall and spring semesters unless otherwise designated by the donor.

For other scholarship opportunities, consider resources in your community. Scholarships may be found by doing research at your local library, high school guidance office, religious organizations, employer, and community service organizations

(i.e. Kiwanis, Lions Club, Rotary, church, etc.).

We DO NOT recommend that students seek the help of private companies for scholarship searches. 

These companies prove to be costly and produce no greater results.
