Links to Popular Threads on Scholarships and Lower-Cost Colleges

Where do I get a list of colleges providing financial aid for international students as well? For example I was recently informed that Georgetown university doesn’t give financial aid to international students.

@someotherdude

http://talk.collegeconfidential.com/international-students/

look at the international student section of this forum.

Here is the old list that we are attempting to update:

http://automaticfulltuition.yolasite.com/

This is a compilation of large scholarship awards that are automatically awarded. The awards included in this list meet the following criteria:

  1. Awarded automatically based on GPA, SAT, ACT, and/or class rank
  2. At least Full Tuition/Full Ride in magnitude (or equivalent)
  3. Open to all US students, regardless of state residency, ethnicity, race, etc.
  4. No need-based requirement or component
  5. College must be accredited, public or non-profit private, 4-year degree-granting institution

Key:

**Full Tuition: covers the cost of tuition for 4 years

Full Ride: covers Tuition, Room, and Board for 4 years (may include other benefits as well)

exp: stipend for experiential learning (internship, study abroad, etc., allowable uses vary by college)**

Where published, the application deadline for receiving the scholarships is included. Some deadlines are “Priority” deadlines, so awards after the deadline may still be possible.

Some schools give awards on a first-come, first-served basis as funds are available. A notation is included for all schools with this caveat.

@mom2collegekids - Confirming Alabama is no longer offering full tuition to Presidential scholars, only Presidential Elites or instate Presidential?

@OHMomof2 If possible, I would suggest that the renewal criteria be listed. Some of these scholarships are much less desirable due to their renewal criteria (e.g. at Florida A&M, the scholarship recipient cannot change major).

In addition, if it is known whether HS GPA is unweighted or weighted (and how weighted if so), it is best if that is listed.

Feel free to redo the list and post but I think they can get all that from the provided web link, and it’s more info to maintain going forward, also not available for all scholarships.

I’ve got a couple to add! Not sure if Utah State’s really counts, though.
