Outside Scholarship Information
Mines’ students have the opportunity to apply for many scholarships that are funded from outside sources. The Financial Aid Office updates the Trailhead Financial Aid Resource page throughout the year with new listings of outside scholarships (located under the Student tab). Be sure to check the Trailhead page frequently.
Scholarship Search Tips
- Create a calendar: When you find a scholarship you want to apply for, but the deadline is too far out or has passed, put it on your calendar for when the application will open.
- Treat scholarship searching and preparation as a part-time, year-round job.
- Skip applications that ask for a fee or bank account information. Check here for information on Scholarship Scams and Services.
- Consider community organizations, parents’ employers or other affiliations.
- Search for things that make you unique: favorite brand of shoes, hobbies, activities, companies you want to work for, local organizations, professional organizations in your field, etc.
- Don’t disqualify yourself!: If you meet most of the criteria, but not all, apply anyway. If you are invited to apply for a scholarship, make it a priority. Don’t wait until the last minute.
- Follow instructions, meet deadlines, and proofread your application.
