Out-of-state academic scholarships?

<p>What are the odds of an out-of-state student (that vastly exceeds the school's averages as far as scores go) getting an academic/merit scholarship? Due to family income, I will not qualify for need-based, but yet places like Eckerd (at 25k+/year) are too expensive. </p>

<p>Basically the three colleges I'd be look at scholarships for is Eckerd, T A&M Galveston, and Colorado School of Mines.</p>


<p>Hmm, well, I just noticed that there's a Scholarships forum. So maybe a moderator could move this?</p>

<p>thanks again :D</p>

<p>Eckerd is private, so state residency won't be required for most scholarships.</p>
