Outside Scholarship Resources

Outside scholarships are a great way to help finance your education (after you have applied for scholarships and financial aid through Agnes Scott).

Our office has prepared a list of outside scholarships offered through a variety of foundations/agencies that we hope will also be of assistance.  Some of our current students have received funding through the scholarships listed here. Please Note: Agnes Scott College has no affiliation with these particular scholarships; this information is simply a helpful resource for you.

This is NOT an all-inclusive list.  You can find many more scholarship opportunities by using a scholarship search website, such as:
