    The Scholarships360 Research Team reviews all scholarships individually and strives to exclude any scholarship where any of the below applies:

    • The scholarship requires a fee to apply
    • The scholarship provider’s privacy policy allows for the misuse of student data
    • The scholarship requires paid membership in an organization (with certain exceptions for reputable trade organizations and others)
    • Student are required to sign up for a site or service to apply*
    • The scholarship seems primarily used for lead generation** or idea harvesting purposes***
    • The scholarship website has many grammatical errors and/or advertisements
    • The scholarship or scholarship providing organization seem untrustworthy
    • There is no evidence the scholarship was previously awarded
    • The scholarship has not been awarded in the past 12 months
    • There is no available contact information

    If you believe a scholarship has been published in error, please reach out to [email protected] and we’ll take a look!


    * There are certain exceptions to this, for example if the sponsoring organization is a major corporation or nonprofit with its own scholarship application system.
    ** Lead generation scholarships will require students to sign up for an app or website and require minimal (if any) application requirements.
    ***Idea harvesting scholarships will require students to submit blog posts or other materials that companies may use for marketing purposes.

    How to win scholarships for students with ADHD

    As with any scholarship, ADHD scholarships are very competitive. In order to win funds for your education, it’s important to submit standout applications. One of the best ways to do this is to research the organizations offering the scholarships. Try to figure out their principles and values and emphasize these throughout your essays.

    Remember, an effective scholarship application will emphasize how you have overcome your obstacles and discuss all that you hope to accomplish in the future, and how you plan to do it. Try to discuss the difficulties of ADHD as opportunities for growth rather than emphasizing the struggle you’ve had with them. Although these scholarships are meant to help ease the struggle that accompanies ADHD, organizations are looking to choose recipients who demonstrate that they can use the money to go on to do great things.

    Writing guides for your essay

    Once you’ve found some scholarship opportunities that are a good fit, it’s time to start applying. We can help you through the writing process with our guides, including how to write an essay about yourself, how to write a winning scholarship essay, and how to tailor your writing to 250 or 500 word limits.

    Sometimes, starting out an essay is the hardest part. We can help you get those first words on paper with our guide on how to start a scholarship essay, and while you’re at it, check out our guide on how to end one. Finally, check out our guide on how to respond to the most common scholarship essay prompts!
