Outside Scholarships

The Financial Aid office hosts Scholarship Workshops for an entire week in the fall semester of each year (usually September). These workshops cover the basics of getting outside scholarships and how our office can help students and families decrease their debt and out of pocket expense.

Last year we advertised 24 outside scholarships and earned an additional $90,000! We worked together and are proud to report recipients in every category – national, regional, and local. We advertised a variety of types of scholarships – write something, do something, make something – to appeal to everyone. And we look for scholarships to appeal to many groups: need based, performance based, and merit based.

Notification emails are sent to all students once school begins in the fall. Some scholarships are repeated each year (we've had contest winners or recipients in the past) and some are new announcements. We average one notification per week.

With millions of scholarship dollars out there, we barely scratch the surface on what is available to us. Interested students will be shown how to find the scholarships that fit their unique circumstances. And the financial aid office will work with any current student on scholarships, whether it is an advertised scholarship or one the student found.

The Financial Aid office will mail all scholarship applications for our students.

Before you are an active Schreiner student, there are a couple of ways for you to get this information. You can "friend" us on Facebook and receive those notifications or you can watch for our group emails to come out.

All Scholarships and Grants awarded by Schreiner University are listed and explained on the FAQs page.

Whether the free money comes from Schreiner University, the federal or state governments, or outside sources, our goal is to help our students generate the most free money possible to help pay for their college education!

The Office of Financial Aid at Schreiner University is committed to assisting students in obtaining the best financial aid award possible. However, it is the student’s responsibility to comply with all requirements necessary to complete the financial aid process. In addition, the Office of Financial Aid is not responsible for the student's financial obligations to Schreiner University. Each student must verify their account balance and make arrangements for any amounts not covered by financial aid.
