About OutsideScholarships

OutsideScholarships is an organization created to give college-bound students an easily accessible database of known outside scholarships.

An Outside Scholarship is scholarship money that does come from the educational institution.

Many of these funds are provided by private institutions or non-profit organizations. Some have very narrow specifications, such as an intention to study a particular field, or an association with a certain heritage. And some are more broad. But many of these scholarship funds go unused by the students who need the most, simply because these young people are not aware of these support funds or how to get them.

Each year, about $3.3 billion in funding is awarded to college students from private organizations. (1)
