Outside Scholarships

These are scholarships from any institution outside Virginia Tech and departments within (i.e. College of Engineering, Pamplin College of Business). We recommend that you:

  • Begin the scholarship search a year prior to the academic year of the award.
  • High school seniors should check with high school guidance departments.
  • Community college transfer students should check with the financial aid office of their current schools.
  • All students should check with local organizations (community service, non-profit agencies, church/denomination, and employers.)
  • Search the internet; many are found simply by exploring personal interests.

Note: Scholarship applications should be free. Scholarship services that charge either to search for scholarships, or to file an application, may be scams.
