200 Free Scholarships For Minorities

Created by Black Excel

[MenTeach: Although the list has a focus on minorities - look through the list you may find something that applies to you.]

This 200 Free Scholarship List is created by Black Excel. They have featured over 1,000+ scholarships at their website. Remember that most groups provide scholarships on an annual basis, so don't stress yourself over any one particular deadline.

Students are advised to target "good" scholarship sources...and apply every year.

In the Black Excel African American Student's College Guide (published by John Wiley & Son and available at Amazon.com), there's a chapter that tells you exactly what to do with regard to "getting the money"! Finding a scholarship is just the first step.
