									SCHOLARSHIPS AND OTHER RESOURCES
Please visit www.prescott.edu/finaid for a list of outside scholarship resources and information on Prescott College institutional scholarships. In addition, we encourage students to research other outside sources of free funding. Unfortunately, there is no one magic application. You know the old saying, "Money doesn't grow on trees." Neither do scholarships. Finding scholarship money takes time and effort. However, we have a few suggestions to help you in your search along with a few websites to help you get started. First, check with your employer for tuition reimbursement benefits. If you are unemployed, visit your local unemployment office for referrals to area retraining programs in your area. Next, look for local, regional and national organizations in your education/career field. Also check with hometown community organizations, such as the Lions Club, Rotary Club or religious affiliations. Search the Internet; try some of the websites listed below. Lastly, visit the reference section of Prescott College library, your local library or nearest community college library.
