External Scholarship Opportunities

Student working on computerThere are many sources for scholarships outside of Aultman College. Investigate resources in your community. Scholarships may be found by researching 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.
