Finding scholarships outside of Elon
Finding scholarships should be a yearly search. Foundations, service clubs, churches, and corporations give away millions of dollars of scholarships each year to worthy students. Many Elon students receive these types of scholarships in addition to financial aid in the form of loans that need to be repaid. Students must seek these scholarships on their own.
