Available Outside Scholarships

Outside scholarship opportunities that may be of benefit to Prescott College Students are updated regularly.  Please refer to the contact information listed for each scholarship for more information. 

This list of scholarships is, by no means, exhaustive. These options are general scholarships for each program* offered at Prescott College, as well as several that are not program specific**. If you would like to seek out additional scholarship opportunities for yourself, you can use some of these as guidelines for viable options. 

Here are some tips when you are looking for scholarships on your own:

  • Apply for a lot of lower award scholarships instead of one big one because lower award scholarships are generally less competitive.
  • Apply for specific scholarships based on your demographic, interests, personal history, or career goals.
  • Apply for scholarships that require a little more work, like an essay or video submission because most people aren’t willing to go that extra step so they’re less competitive.
  • Be weird! It’s more important to present unique and individual insights in an application than it is to give the “right” answer. Committees read well-worded essays with basic and correct responses all day, so be brave and write something out of the box to grab their interest.

*The Interdisciplinary Studies program does not appear on this list. If your emphasis or breadth aligns with one of the programs listed, please consult that tab. These programs have too broad of a scope to find scholarships that fit them specifically without more insight into the individual student. 

**If you have interests or passions that align with another program, look in that tab too. Sometimes, the scholarship just wants students to have a firm interest in a subject, not study it as their major. For example, maybe you are in the Psychology and Human Development program, but you plan to use outdoor activities in mental health care...maybe the Adventure Education tab has something for you too!
