    College Scholarships with Large Awards

    Rather than going after several smaller awards, you could focus on high-dollar opportunities. These are some of the biggest grants and scholarships for 2021, but keep in mind that the competition can be intense.

    Need-based Scholarships

    Some opportunities are focused specifically on students who need financial assistance to attend college. Here are the noteworthy need-based awards for 2021:

    Merit-based Scholarships

    For students who have good grades, awards based on academic achievement can help you get free money for college tuition. There are typically requirements that you keep your GPA up during college, so be prepared to study hard, using online resources such as OneClass to help. Here are our top academic scholarships for 2021:

    Esports Scholarships

    There’s a growing pool of money available for esports competitors, with available funds increasing five-fold in the past four years. Award rates average $4,800 per year or up to 50 percent off tuition. Below are some of the major programs to consider. Check NACE’s complete list of colleges that offer esports to see which team you might want to join.

    School-based Scholarships

    The school that you’re attending may offer its own set of awards that have been funded by alumni, local businesses, or other partners. Your application for these awards will likely begin with a FAFSA application for federal student aid. The FAFSA results will initiate your school’s internal financial aid awards process to identify your eligibility.

    Scholarships Specific to Your Major

    Does your area of study have a leading professional organization? If so, it could be a great source for noteworthy funding opportunities in your area of study.

    For example, the IEEE had funded several awards for students majoring in computational and technical degrees. In another case, marine biology students could benefit from the Marine Technology Society’s listings.

    Additionally, these opportunities have a potential secondary benefit of providing access to postgraduate fellowships or networking events, helping you fuel your career before it’s even begun.

    Athletic Scholarships

    Billions of dollars are awarded each year to student athletes, but only 2 percent of high school athletes are recruited to play college sports, according to the NCAA.

    Keep in mind that athletes who keep their grades up may have more academic security, making them eligible for merit-based opportunities if their team’s funding changes or they suffer an injury. There are many ways to get the perks of being a college athlete, even when you’re not on the team.

    OneClass also put together a list of nine top scholarship directories to search for additional opportunities.
