I would also advise checking out a website such as www.scholarships.com. You can then search not only by discipline but by ethnicity, race, location, gender, age, religion, physical disabilities, etc. There are other scholarship websites that you could also check out that could possibly offer other lists.
Hi there! To echo some of what a previous person answered, definitely check with your school's financial aid office. Most likely the manage their own scholarships and also know what other scholarships are offered by other departments at your university.
Also be sure to check with your college (like if you're a business management major, your college would be the college of business). Colleges usually have their own groups of scholarships available to students with those specific majors.
There are some state-based foundations that manage scholarships for students in the entire state (for example, Arizona has the Arizona Community Foundation). I would encourage you to do some internet searches to see if there's anything like that in your area.
Two important things I will note:
1)Apply early! Many universities award their scholarships in April or May for the following academic year (for example, you could be notified you're getting a scholarship in April 2018, but you wouldn't be able to use it until Fall 2018/Spring 2019). Start looking in late fall semester/early spring semester.
2)Not all scholarships are based on GPA. Many scholarships don't have GPA requirements because they focus on things like extracurricular activities and college/life experiences. Don't give up if someof what you find has GPA requirements, there are others out there!
I would have you look into the following: 1) any discipline specific professional societies; 2) if you or members of your family own an account in a bank or credit union, sometimes they have scholarships; 3) if you or your family has a particular illness, the society's or group have scholarships (like the National MS Society); 4) check with your school's financial aid office; 5) google your discipline/area of student along with the word "scholarships".
I hope this helps.
