Here’s a list of scholarships available this Spring! Most of them are merit-based with broad eligibility requirements, though I did include a few that have more niche qualifications. Most of these scholarships are for US citizens only. While I did include basic eligibility requirements, make sure you review all fine print before you put in the effort to apply. I encourage you to use my scholarship search tips to create your own targeted lists, but for now, I hope this document will give you a jumpstart you can use to start applying TODAY!
