If you are considered to be in the minority and you are a woman then this page might interest you. Our goal here at Scholarships For Women Online was to create a resource that all women can use to find the assistance they need for college. We have written extensive content on scholarships on a state by state basis, for mothers, by a major basis and by a race basis. Obviously, this particular post falls under the race category. Basically, we are going to cover the best way that a minority woman can get a scholarship starting with financial aid.
Financial Aid For Minority Women
We recommend financial aid to everyone going to college. It really isn’t that hard to apply for and the money you receive can certain cut your college tuition costs. In some cases (if you are attending a community college) financial aid will actually pay your entire tuition. Of course, as you start taking upper level courses the costs of tuition will rise. However, we are of the mindset that every little bit of money helps. You can sign up for financial aid by visiting FAFSA.
As a minority you are eligible for a lot of scholarships that other people are not. This is enhanced by the fact that you are a woman. So, it only makes sense for you to take advantage of the opportunity you have to apply for these scholarships. We have taken the liberty to compile a list of the top scholarships or sites that offer scholarships for minorities. It is completely up to you on whether you want to apply for them or not. Take a look below:
- Minority And Disability Scholarship
- Disabled War Veteran Scholarship
- United Negro College Fund
- Black Excel
- New York Urban League
- Elks National Foundation
