Many college/university merit-based scholarships and organizational scholarships have December deadlines so now is a good time to start your search. To get you started, two of the many online databases are linked below. Please be careful to avoid scams, and never ever share Social Security or credit card information on scholarship websites or applications.
- The first place to look for scholarships is the colleges and universities where your student is applying.
- Any scholarship information that is sent to directly to GRACE Christian school is posted on the Scholarship Page of our school website.
- The Wake County Public School System Online Scholarship Guide is a remarkable resource that is updated weekly by Wake County Public School Counselors here in North Carolina. For example, once on the website, if you select “Search for a Scholarship” and type in “Cary” or “Raleigh”, many local scholarships will display. National Scholarships are included on this site as well. Searches by source, discipline, and deadline are also available.
- Fastweb is a national scholarship database which enables your students to match their interests with merit and need-based scholarships nationwide. It does tend to generate a lot of emails once your student has created a profile, so it may be in their best interest to use an email address other than their school account.
