Liberty Online Scholarship Opportunities

What is a Scholarship?

A scholarship is designed to give college students the opportunity to gain financial support based on academic or other achievements and affiliations. Each scholarship has unique requirements and deadlines. It is important to keep these deadlines in mind as you apply for scholarships in order to allow enough time for processing. Students pursuing an online degree through Liberty University are encouraged to explore our various scholarship opportunities.

External Scholarships Opportunities for Online Students

Finding scholarships is easier than you may think! You can begin by searching online, through an employer, or with a religious organization. There is, however, a way to simplify your scholarship search and locate funds for which you qualify. You can use keywords and qualifiers in your searches to help find scholarships that are specific to you. For example, when searching for scholarships describe your qualities, characteristics, or interests. By using these keywords in your scholarship search, you will narrow down your searches and find results faster. Choosing the right keywords will connect you with the right information.
