What Kind of College Scholarships Are Open To Homeschoolers?

This question is somewhat of a hard one to answer, just because it differs for everyone. There are all kinds of scholarships out there for everyone.


Most organizations won’t discriminate you because you’re homeschooled (unless they’re called “Scholarships for Public Schoolers” or something). And if you don’t get a scholarship, try to keep in mind that maybe it just wasn’t the right one for you. For every ten applications you send in, you may only get one or two back positive.

Places You Can Find Scholarships:

  • Colleges

  • heritage organizations

  • professional organizations; corporations, community businesses

  • churches

  • civic groups

Online Research

There are many ways to check which scholarships you qualify for.

College BoardScholarship America, and Fast Web are some great sites to help you along.

Remember that applying for scholarships should happen between your junior and senior year of high school. And have fun doing it! You’re helping your future by helping your college payments, and that’s a big deal but there’s no way you can’t have a blast writing an essay!

“Nothing can stop the man with the right mental attitude from achieving his goal; nothing on earth can help the man with the wrong mental attitude.”
