Outside/Private Scholarship Resources
- Private Scholarships are awarded by private organizations such as the Elks Club, church groups, unions, etc. Notification of private scholarships should be forwarded to the Financial Aid Office. Private Scholarships are considered financial aid awards and may reduce the amount students need to borrow.
