    Last Update: March 6, 2020

    There are lots of scholarship opportunities out there, but it can be hard to know where to start looking. Some might even find it too intimidating to begin looking at all! That’s where we come in. We at Colleges of Distinction have compiled a list of scholarships for 2020 to help get the ball rolling. 

    There’s no denying it: things like textbooks, tuition, supplies, housing, and dues add up quickly when you get to campus. Luckily, a lot of companies and organizations want to help students like you pave the way to an education by offering various grant and scholarship opportunities for different interests, talents, and backgrounds. In fact, more than $49 billion in scholarship money was awarded to first-time college students in 2011—and that doesn’t even account for the more than $100 million in unclaimed scholarships that nobody applied to!

    Don’t let your up-front costs scare you; with the right planning and resources, you have the potential to take your college bills down a few thousands dollars a semester. Here is a mega list of some of the best scholarships for college provided by companies, organizations, and foundations so that students can focus less on their financial aid and more on their future!

    Scholarships Available for your Students

    College tuition and fees continue to increase at rates higher than inflation each year and it can be a problem for many of your students as to how to fund that college education. Luckily, there are many great scholarships available to help cover some of those costs.

     

    Oneclass.com has put together a nice list of scholarships available on a national basis.

    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 2019, 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 2019:

    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 2019:

    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.
