Apply for a Scholarship



All scholarship applications are accepted via our online scholarship system. To review the criteria for the many scholarships we offer, please refer to the scholarship listings organized by state, financial need, student status, or those for the skilled trades. We also strongly encourage you to visit the FAQs page.

To begin the application process, please take the following steps:

1. So that you don't miss any important communication from us, add these two email addresses to your email contact lists:

  • - Automated emails from the online scholarship system will come from this address. (Do not send emails to this address.)
  • - You may email us at this address with questions.

2. Login to our online scholarship system by clicking the button below. If this is your first visit, you will be prompted to create a new user account and password.

3. Complete our eligibility quiz in the online system, which will determine which scholarships you can apply for. Once you have taken the eligibility quiz, the applications that you are eligible to complete will be assigned to you in the online scholarship system. You can save and return to each application as needed until you hit submit.

If you have additional questions please call us at 563-326-2840 or email
