If you know of scholarships that do not match any of the following categories or are best listed under a category rather than a list, please create a new page for that category and list it here.
As a general guideline for scholarships: if you're paying to apply then it is probably not a legitimate organization of scholarship.

Scholarships by subject
- Scholarship Search Websites have many more scholarships and search features - check them out for religious, military, need-based, minority-specific, and other scholarships.
- Ask your high school guidance counselor, college financial aid officer, or career center.
- Your high school's website or those of other area high schools
- College websites (many colleges offer departmental, subject-specific scholarships or even merit-based full-tuition scholarships)
- If your club/organization has a parent organization (such as Kiwanis for Key Club and Boy Scouts), find the national organization's website.
- If your parents and/or grandparents belong to any groups (Elks, Rotary Club, etc.), check out their websites.
- Your parents' employers, especially if they work for a larger corporation.
- Check the newspaper regularly, especially if you have a more local one.
- Check for local legislative scholarships.
- Check your library or bookstore for scholarship books. They're often organized by your interests and where you live.
Boston University’s most prestigious merit-based award recognizes students who show outstanding academic and leadership abilities. Every year, Boston University welcomes about 20 outstanding students to the Trustee Scholars Program. Many of our current Scholars had perfect 4.0 grade point averages in high school and typically ranked in the top 5–10% of their class.
In addition to exceptional academic credentials, Trustee Scholars are intellectually and creatively adventurous and demonstrate viewpoints, experiences or achievements beyond the usual. They are, in other words, not just top students, but extraordinary people. At BU, scholars also become part of a unique campus community that offers many intellectual, cultural, and social opportunities.
While the competition is especially rigorous, the benefits are considerable. A Trustee Scholarship covers full undergraduate tuition plus the University orientation and mandatory undergraduate student fees and is renewable for four years if certain criteria are met.
