Scholarships for College Freshmen

While you may already have started your college journey, it doesn’t mean that you can’t get funding. While most scholarships are aimed at high school seniors, there are still plenty available for incoming or current freshmen. As an enrolled college or university student, you're the perfect candidate for a scholarship. Why? Because you’ve already begun working towards your preferred career. Scholarship sponsors and organizations are looking to support students who are motivated and already committed to a field that aligns with their core business.

As an enrolled college student, time is not on your side. You’re inundated with coursework, and possibly even a side job, so finding time to search for scholarships is difficult. No worries, the team at Scholaroo has made it easier for you by compiling a database of scholarships for college students. We gathered information on more than 100 scholarships for college freshmen and made it as easy as possible to find the perfect one for you. Whether you’re an engineering or business major or looking to become a nurse or artist, we’ve got plenty of funding options for you.

Frequently asked questions

When should I start applying for scholarships?

As a college freshman, you hopefully started applying for funding in your senior year of high school. If however you either didn’t receive funding, already had a way to cover your tuition, or only received funding for one year, you’ll need to find the funds for the next three to four years. While most scholarships ask you to apply in your senior year, there are still many that allow college freshmen to apply. 



How to apply for scholarships?

While each scholarship has its own requirements, they generally all require the same information. Gather all your personal and financial information, as well as the latest transcripts. Save them in an easily accessible place, like a shortcut on your desktop, as you will need them for almost every application. For college freshmen, you will need to provide proof of enrollment and your latest transcript – either from high school or your current college/university if you’ve already started.
