Can You get Scholarships for Online Degrees?

 

Pursuing an online degree is a great way to advance your education, but figuring out how to pay for it can be stressful, especially in these tough economic times. Most students need some sort of financial aid to help them cover the cost of their education, and scholarships are one potential option that many students overlook.

There are thousands of institutions and organizations that award scholarships. In fact, hundreds of millions of dollars are awarded to students in the United States every year. And if you think you need to be a stellar athlete, straight-A student or attend a traditional classroom based university or college to get a piece of the action, think again.

A quick search on the Internet will turn up a plethora of options. To start, you may want to look for opportunities at your school or in your hometown. Students who already know their field of study can check for scholarships related to their degree, too. Just be careful... any web site that asks you to pay a fee to apply is probably a scam.

Here are a just a few examples to show you the wide variety of scholarships that are available:
