Transfer scholarships are usually merit based, meaning scholarships are awarded because of strong academic performance (high GPAs), not financial need.

Scholarships can vary from school to school and by various criteria, so check at each college you are interested in.

  1. Start at a college website, search for "Scholarships" or look for information at the Financial Aid page.
  2. Identify any and all transfer scholarships available.
  3. Read about the scholarship application process and pick up application materials, if needed.
  4. Find out about scholarship deadlines. If in doubt, call the school to confirm the deadline date.

 

Words of Warning

  • Many organizations offer scholarships, and individuals provide professional assistance in finding them. Most groups are legitimate, but others are not.
  • Be suspicious of organizations or individuals that charge application fees for their scholarships. If their goal is to give away money, they should not be asking you for money.
  • Also beware of individuals who claim there are vast amounts of unclaimed scholarship money and they can guarantee you will get some. If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is not true.
