OUTSIDE SCHOLARSHIPS

At Cedar Crest College we strive to help you find sources of funding you might not otherwise acquire. Below are links for scholarships that you may explore and we have a scholarship binder in our office that you may review during business hours. As you research scholarships, please keep in mind that there should be no application fee to apply for a scholarship. 

We encourage you to look for outside scholarships to help fund your education, cover expenses and possibly lower the amount of loans you borrow. If you are eligible for any outside scholarships, you must notify the Student Finance office and provide us documentation of the scholarship award.

HOW DO YOU FIND SCHOLARSHIPS?

You can learn about scholarships in several ways, including contacting the financial aid office at the school you plan to attend and checking information in a public library or online. But be careful. Make sure scholarship information and offers you receive are legitimate; and remember that you don't have to pay to find scholarships or other financial aid. Check out our information on how to avoid scams.

Try these free sources of information about scholarships:

  • the financial aid office at a college or career school
  • a high school or TRIO counselor
  • the U.S. Department of Labor’s FREE scholarship search tool
  • federal agencies
  • your state grant agency
  • your library’s reference section
  • foundations, religious or community organizations, local businesses, or civic groups
  • organizations (including professional associations) related to your field of interest
  • ethnicity-based organizations
  • your employer or your parents’ employers
