Outside Scholarships

Ashland University intends to give students who receive an outside scholarship the maximum benefit possible. Students are required to report to the Financial Aid Office, in writing, the name of the scholarship and the amount awarded for each academic year as soon as the student becomes aware of his/her eligibility for the outside award. The outside grant or scholarship will be added to the other aid the student is entitled to, as long as total financial aid does not exceed a student’s need or cost of attendance.


Your outside scholarship search for the following academic year should start in the fall. Some helpful websites for national scholarship searches are www.finaid.org, www.fastweb.com and www.collegeboard.com. You should also check with your hometown’s Chamber of Commerce, Education Foundations, City Hall or even with your high school’s guidance counselor to learn about local sources of funding. Below is a list of outside scholarship sources that have been sent to Ashland University to disseminate to our students.
