    • 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

    ** 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 high school seniors

    Most scholarships receive a large amount of applications, so it’s important that your applications stand out! One of the most important parts of the scholarship application process is the essay, which allows the scholarship committee to learn more about you as a person. 

    To get started, you can check out guide on how to start a scholarship essay, as well as our guide on how to write an essay about yourself.  Many essays will also have a word count limit, so you can also check out our articles on how to write a 250 word essay and how to write a 500 word essay.  As a final step in the essay writing process, students should be sure to have someone proofread their scholarship essay!

    Some competitive scholarships might also require students to do an interview with the scholarship committee. This offers applicants another opportunity to stand out and share more about their goals, experiences, and interests. If you are prepping for a scholarship interview, you should spend some time reflecting on common scholarship interview questions so you can go into the interview well-prepared.

    Expert Perspective

    School counselors, siblings, friends, parents, relatives, and teachers can all be great people to turn to for advice on your scholarship applications. In particular, I always recommend that students find one trusted person to read and provide feedback on their scholarship essays.

    College merit scholarships for high school seniors

    While outside scholarships are offered by private companies, non-profits, and foundations, college merit scholarships are offered by individual colleges. Merit scholarships are awarded to students with demonstrated achievement in academics, extracurriculars, and leadership, but the primary factors are grades and tests scores. Merit scholarships are strong sources of financial aid because they generally are renewable for four years of college.

    To apply for merit scholarships, students will need to follow each college’s specific scholarship application process. At some colleges, there will be a separate merit scholarship application and deadline, while at other colleges, all students will be considered for merit scholarships. To get started on your merit scholarship search, you can check out our top merit scholarships guide.

    Scholarship spotlight for high school seniors

    We’ve given you a rundown above, but here is a more in-depth guide to our 3 top scholarships for HS seniors:

    Gates Scholarship

    This full-ride scholarship is open to high school seniors who are low-income, part of a minority group, and demonstrate academic and extracurricular excellence. It’s been running since 2017, and remains one of the best scholarships a student can obtain.

    Coca Cola Scholars

    One great thing about this $20,000 scholarship is the number of awards; 150 students receive the Coca Cola Scholars Program Scholarship every year. Even though they receive many applications, the number of awards gives each student a much higher chance of winning. They have programs for students pursuing a 4-year degree, as well as 2-year degrees at community colleges.

    Cameron Impact Scholarship

    This four-year, full-ride scholarship is open to all high school seniors who meet GPA and citizenship requirements. Unlike most full-ride scholarships, this one does not take into account a student’s cultural background or their socioeconomic status. So, if you have found yourself limited in your scholarship applications, make sure to give Cameron Impact a shot.

    Tips for high school seniors applying for scholarships

    • Ask for your letters of recommendation early. The last thing you want to do is rush your teachers when they are helping you out by writing you a letter. The earlier you ask, the more time they’ll have and the better they’ll make their letters.
    • Apply for local scholarships. These scholarship programs typically have a lower award amount but they have far fewer applicants, so you have a much better chance of winning than national scholarships. A great place to start looking for local scholarships is your high school guidance counselor. Many local organizations like Elks Club and church communities offer scholarships to students in the area.
    • Apply to a wide range of safety schools. These safety schools will have a better chance of awarding you merit scholarships that could cover a substantial part of your tuition.
    • Before you start your applications, do some informal reflection. Talk to family members, friends, and trusted adults about your goals for the future and your strengths and weaknesses. Think about where you want to be in 10 years and write down the results of your brainstorming on a piece of paper. You can use bullet points or any type of notation that is easy for you. Then come back to this paper as you fill out your applications. It should give you good material to base your essays on and make the whole process much easier.
    • Apply to at least one in-state public school. With in-state tuition rates, these typically end up being substantially cheaper than other options.

    Expert Perspective

    Your school counselor is a great resource for learning more about scholarship opportunities. Many times, the college/guidance counseling office will have a list of scholarship opportunities that are for students in your school or local community. These scholarships are great, because they typically have less competition than larger, national awards and you are more likely to win. If you are part of a community-based organization, your advisor or counselor will be able to provide you with similar help and resources.

    Frequently asked questions

    Is it too late to apply for scholarships as a high school senior?

    As long as you are intending on continuing your education it is never too late to apply for scholarships! Scholarships are available throughout the year so there should always be opportunities available to you. Students can even continue to apply for scholarships after receiving their college acceptance!

    Should high school seniors fill out the FAFSA?

    Yes! High school seniors should complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid or FAFSA to be eligible for need-based financial aid. By completing the FAFSA, you may be eligible for need-based grants like the Pell Grant (which do not need to be repaid), federal student loans, and federal work study. The FAFSA opens up on October 1st and all high school seniors should make FAFSA completion a priority once it opens up. 

    Are student athletes eligible for scholarships?

    Yes! Many student athletes, especially varsity athletes, may receive scholarships from the schools they apply to. Whether these are explicitly tied to their athletics or just a result of the athletics bolstering their application can vary. There are also many private scholarships out there for athletes. You can check out our list of athletic scholarships to get started!

    Does financial need affect scholarships for graduating high school seniors?

    Need-based scholarship programs will take financial need into consideration, but not all do. For example, merit scholarships weigh factors such as GPA, test scores, community service, extracurriculars, and essays rather than finances. Many scholarships use a combination of financial need and merit to determine the winner.

    Are there scholarships for African-American seniors in high school?

    Yes! Many of the scholarships on this list are for Black and African-American students, including the Blacks at Microsoft Scholarship. If you are looking for scholarships specifically for Black and African-American students, you can also check out our list of scholarships for Black students.
