Outside Scholarships Currently Accepting Applications

 As the OSFA  becomes aware of outside agency scholarship opportunities, we will post them here. Although we screen these listings to eliminate any offers that do not appear to be legitimate, inclusion in this list does not indicate an endorsement or recommendation of any kind. Students should contact potential donors, visit websites linked below, and apply to these scholarships at their own risk and discretion.

Please note: Outside scholarships are from organizations that are not part of Georgia Tech. As a reminder, scholarship applications should be free. Scholarship services that charge a fee to search for scholarships or file an application could be scams.
