More Scholarship Opportunities

Institutionally-funded scholarships from HU are just one of the tools available to you. Outside scholarships are a helpful resource for covering the remaining costs of college. We strongly encourage you to investigate private scholarships and grants from organizations beyond the campus. Many scholarships and grants are offered by private sources, such as private foundations, companies, fraternal and religious organizations, labor unions, veterans organizations, professional associations, social groups, and ethnic associations.

Because they are private and therefore not administered by HU, it is up to you to research and apply for them on your own. The best place to start your research is with any organization you or a family member has an affiliation with (such as your or your parents’ employer, church or religious organization). If you’re a current high school student, contact your guidance office for information on local scholarships.

Be careful when reviewing information online. We recommend that you do not use fee-based services to look for private scholarships. Below are several free scholarship search engines:
