Outside Scholarship Opportunities
Outside scholarships, or scholarships not specific to Gonzaga University students, are widely available through many different sources. The Financial Aid Office maintains a scholarship database, which contains scholarships we feel are a good fit for our students. The database of outside scholarships can be viewed here. The database will be updated when new scholarships become available. Eligibility requirements and application deadlines may change without our knowledge. We advise students to thoroughly research an organization prior to submitting a scholarship application. Any student using the Internet to apply for scholarships should be aware of possible scams. Please be aware that you should never pay for scholarship information.
Other opportunities exist through many organizations within your community, and we encourage you to pursue them whenever possible. Contact your guidance counselor or check with service organizations such as Knights of Columbus, Rotary Club, and Elks Club. Other possible sponsors include employers, parent's employers, trade associations, banks, credit unions, corporations, schools, and churches.
There are also free national scholarship search engines that provide scholarship information. Some of the scholarship search websites are listed below. Gonzaga University does not guarantee the accuracy of the information found of the sites listed, and does not take responsibility for any information published therein.
