Scholarships

Scholarships at Paul Quinn CollegeStudents who earn the most scholarships are scholarly, aggressive, and consistent.  We suggest that Quinnites and prospective Quinnites be all three to maximize their scholarship earning potential.  In order to prepare students for seeking out scholarships, we suggest the following tips:

  1. Utilize your resources.  High school students should begin their scholarship searches with their respective guidance counselors.  Quinnites should consider starting with the Office of Financial Aid to begin their respective searches.
  2. Leave no stone unturned.  There is no limit to the number of scholarships students can earn!  Apply, apply, apply!
  3. Be prepared to write.  Many scholarships require essays.  Students should also seek help writing their essays if need be.
  4. Be prepared to interview.  Some scholarships require interviews and some interviews may occur in person.  Be prepared to explain why you deserve the scholarship for which you are applying and look your Quinnite best.  Get tips on how to dress for a job interview and apply those rules to your scholarship interview.
  5. Only consider free scholarship searches.  Some organizations charge students to conduct scholarship searches.  This is unnecessary with a wealth of resources such as guidance counselors, teachers, administrators, and other mentors and educators available.  You can even benefit from conducting a "free scholarship search" with your favorite internet search engine.
