Other Scholarship Resources

This scholarship/internship list provides links and opportunities that: 

  1. Lead to other links and opportunities, and/or to sites where you need to register. These are links that will lead to lots of net-surfing.
  2. Have eligibility requirements that will probably not apply to most TRIO students. There are many scholarships for high school seniors, third-and fourth-year college students at 4-year university, and for graduate students (people who already have not just an A.S. but a B.A., and are going for a Masters degree or a PhD.), as well as for people who live in states other than NM or will be attending a college in a state other than NM. OR
  3. We haven’t had time to evaluate yet.

If you’re curious, ready to transfer, planning for grad school, or know someone else who might benefit from these other scholarships, you can find info here.

Roothbert Fund. $2,000-3,000
Location of Applicants: As a rule, The Roothbert Fund does not make Scholarship Grants EXCEPT to applicants whose current or permanent address is located in one of the  following States of the United States and applicants planning to move to one of such States prior to March 1 of the year in which the application is made: Maine, New  Hampshire, Vermont, Rhode Island, Massachusetts, Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Delaware, Maryland, District of Columbia, Virginia, West Virginia, or North Carolina. It is probably counter-productive to submit an application if you live outside this area.

The Roothbert Fund was created to help men and women in need of financial aid to further their education. Scholarships may only be applied to study at an accredited institution based in the United States. The Fund seeks candidates who are "motivated by spiritual values," and works to foster fellowship among them.
