Outside Scholarships

Outside scholarships are a great way to fill in any gaps in your cost of attendance to Agnes Scott after receiving merit-based and need-based aid. External scholarship programs are all different in terms of application and qualification processes, so be sure to check out how each program works. For your convenience, check out our outside scholarship application guide, created in concert with current students who discovered, applied for and received multiple outside scholarships.

Our office has prepared a list of outside scholarships and aggregator sites to get you started. Agnes Scott College has no affiliation with these particular scholarships; this information is simply a helpful resource for you.

Beginning your outside scholarship search on an aggregate website can be helpful. See a few listed below.
