BONUS: SOME MINORITY SCHOLARSHIPS
AFRICAN AMERICAN SCHOLARSHIPS
A common category for scholarships is ethnicity, along with other classifications for “minorities,” since they tend to be underrepresented in many areas of society. Colleges and universities, along with many philanthropic organizations, seek ways to support students in their pursuit of higher education. However, ethnic background may not be the only factor required when applying for such scholarships.
Many scholarships may not focus on ethnicity at all. Popular organizations that award African Americans include the United Negro College Fund and the National Assistance for the Advancement of Colored People.
Historically black colleges will also award students of African American heritage based on a variety of criteria. Therefore,
we encourage you to conduct a free scholarship search to find all the scholarships in our database that you may qualify for.
Some well-known organizations such as the Ronald McDonald House Charities or the ¡Adelante! Fund is dedicated to assisting
Hispanic and Latino students when it comes to paying for college. Though Hispanic and Latino scholarships are numerous, ethnicity should not be the singular feature highlighted when searching for a scholarship.
Whether it is ethnicity, a sport at which you excel, or a musical instrument, strong academics are always encouraged. Many factors contribute to winning a scholarship, and chances in winning can be increased when combining and adding more appealing elements.
That is why we encourage students to conduct a free scholarship search to find all the scholarships in our database for which you qualify.
AMERICAN INDIAN/NATIVE AMERICAN SCHOLARSHIPS
Since there are fewer Native Americans than there are Latinos, Hispanics, and African Americans, there is less competition when it comes to Native American scholarships.
Native Americans have been historically underrepresented in higher education and with colleges’ initiatives to help provide funding for this group, many scholarships are subject-specific to encourage growth in underrepresented fields.
Some scholarships require post-college work in certain regions as well, such as Native American communities and tribes. Conducting a free scholarship search will show you what scholarships you qualify for based on a number of criteria.
Native American-specific scholarships will typically require documentation and proof of Native American descent and lineage.
Also, certain scholarships may be limited to a specific tribe, such as the Cherokee, Choctaw, Creek, Chickasaw, or Seminole tribes. Always be sure to read the rules and eligibility carefully before applying.
It is most efficient to utilize our free scholarship search service since you can never be certain as to how you can qualify for a particular scholarship.
By filtering out many scholarships, we cater to your individual profile and can supply you with the most appropriate, individual-specific scholarships.
ASIAN/PACIFIC ISLANDER SCHOLARSHIPS
Just as there are scholarships specifically targeted towards Latino, Hispanic, African American, and Native American minority students, there are scholarships solely for Asian or Pacific Islander students. It is misleading to categorize together all Asian and Pacific Islander populations since they not only differ regionally but culturally as well.
Asian American and Pacific Islanders, just as Latinos and Hispanics, are fast-growing populations in U.S. colleges and universities. When it comes to scholarships, there are organizations that may be looking specifically for either Asians or Pacific Islanders – and some may want both.
For example, the Asian and Pacific Islander American Scholarship Fund is dedicated to creating opportunities for students to access, complete, and succeed after post-secondary education through their scholarship program.
AAPI students may need to prove interested in a specific field, demonstrate academic success or community leadership. Conducting a free scholarship search will show you what scholarships you qualify for based on a number of criteria.
