2010-2011 Outside Scholarship Opportunities
Listed in Order of Deadline Dates
The following is a list of scholarships available through organizations separate from Cedar Crest College. In addition to scholarships listed below, students are encouraged to investigate outside scholarship opportunities from hometown civic clubs, high schools, parents’ employers, churches and other organizations. Students are required to notify Student Financial Services and provide written documentation if they receive any outside scholarships, as federal regulations required these to be considered a resource in determining aid eligibility. If adjustments to the aid package are necessary due to outside scholarships, Cedar Crest reduces self-help aid first (student loans) and adjusts grants only if necessary to prevent an over-award.
