Looking for scholarships?
Scholarships and grants—money that does not have to be repaid—are naturally the most sought-after type of assistance.
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.
Students must seek these scholarships on their own or with the help of high school guidance counselors. Research what scholarships are available in your community or at places where family members are employed, through your church, and through any organizations to which family members belong. Finally, go to the public library for guidebooks to scholarships from foundations to corporations and government agencies. You can also search online for similar information.
