Distance Learning Scholarships

Thousands of scholarships are potentially available for distance learning students. Some scholarships offer one time payments, while others offer payments every semester for eligible students. Privately funded and publicly funded distance learning scholarships can be earned based on a variety of criteria.

Some of the most common factors that scholarship committees consider are: grade point average (GPA), high school reputation, class ranking, advanced placement exam scores, SAT/ACT scores, race, gender, volunteering, hobbies, sports, clubs, essays, family income level, academic awards, and other achievements.

Scholarships that at least partially depend on your family’s income level are called need-based scholarships. Distance learning scholarships that do not consider your current financial status are called merit-based scholarships. Many government-funded scholarships take into account financial need, so even though a student has a great resume, he or she may not be able to win many of these publicly funded scholarships.

Many schools offer their own privately funded scholarships and grants – you just have to contact the schools to find out. Fill out our site’s free degree search form to request scholarship information from accredited distance learning universities.
