Please do not pay for outside scholarship information, as free resources are plentiful. There are many private and public organizations with an interest in helping individuals pay for college.
Below are a few research resources. Please note that NDNU does not remove institutional grants for students with outside scholarships, unless federal need is exceeded (and this is rare).
For additional information, download NDNU's whitepaper on searching for scholarships.
