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.


Interested in earning micro-scholarships for your hard work and accomplishments throughout high school? We encourage you to explore RaiseMe, a free online tool that helps us acknowledge your achievement. Over time, you will earn institutional aid for good grades, club participation, sports, volunteer activities, and more that you can put towards your Redlands education. Click here to learn more. Micro scholarships are non-stackable and the total award earned is distributed between all four years of attendance at Redlands.
