    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 homeschoolers

    As you can see, there are many scholarships designed exclusively for homeschooled students. However, don’t be afraid to broaden your scholarship search to include more general awards that are not specific to homeschoolers. You’ll probably still be eligible for these scholarships, and you can even use your homeschooled background to distinguish yourself from other applicants. Scholarship committees review thousands of applications (which tend to blend together after a while) so your unique status as a homeschooled student could be an advantage.

    Another great way to make sure your application gets noticed is to write a strong essay. Scholarship committees rely on essay submissions to understand who you are as a person, what you’re passionate about, and what you aim to accomplish. Fortunately, we have a variety of guides that will walk you through the process of writing a top-notch essay:

    Frequently asked questions about scholarships for homeschoolers

    Can homeschooled students qualify for need-based financial aid?

    Absolutely! Homeschoolers can and should complete financial aid applications like the FAFSA and the CSS Profile (as always, check with the colleges you are applying to for more details about their financial aid application requirements). 

    Need-based financial aid can include everything from Pell Grants to federal student loans to work study so you definitely don’t want to miss out!

    Can you get into college if you’re homeschooled?

    Certainly! Most colleges don’t even require a high school diploma from homeschooled students – typically a detailed portfolio of one’s coursework and standardized tests will suffice. Application processes differ by college, however, so make sure to reach out to specific colleges with questions that come up when applying.

    Is the number of homeschoolers increasing?

    In a normal year, around 3% of American school-aged children are homeschooled. However, with COVID-19 restrictions causing many children to attend school virtually, some experts expect an increase in the number of homeschooled students soon, due to a possible newfound liking for working from home.
