Outside Scholarships

We realize that every extra dollar helps in paying for college. Student Financial Services is constantly reviewing information from private organizations to uncover scholarship opportunities that students might not otherwise apply for. We encourage you to stop by our office for more information.

Students who are awarded "outside" scholarships that may be applied to their total costs will have the funds added to their financial aid packages; this may allow us to reduce their loans or adjust their packages.

Outside Scholarship Providers

The following organizations have provided information to our office regarding scholarship opportunities. The University of Redlands does not endorse any specific outside scholarship provider. As always, students should be wary of scholarship scams.
