How to Find Scholarships

We've put together general lists of scholarships available in Colorado and across the nation to help you in your search.

  • Please verify application requirements and deadlines for each scholarship in which you’re interested.
  • Never pay for financial aid or scholarship information! If there’s a fee, it’s a scam.
  • You’ll find many “scholarship sweepstakes” sites online. Those are not included here. The odds of “winning” are slim, and you end up being a marketing test subject. Your time is better spent applying directly to specific scholarships.
  • Some scholarship database companies require that you set up personal accounts before you can access applications. Scholarships tied to third-party for-profit databases are not included here. Always be cautious about disclosing your personal information.
  • For the best return on your investment of time, prioritize state and local scholarships over national ones.
  • Most of your scholarship dollars will come from the school you choose to attend. Once accepted, you’ll have access to internal opportunities.
  • While we have carefully vetted this list, neither Fort Collins High School nor Poudre School District is responsible for the accuracy or reliability of the content.
