Funding Your Education Is Easier Than You Think
Point University is dedicated to making college tuition affordable to you. In addition to offering the Point Community Scholarship for online students, Point has created these Scholarship Guides, which offer helpful tips, resources, and links to dozens of external scholarships for students of all backgrounds.
The following Scholarship Guides are organized by faith, ethnicity, life status, and military status, though please be advised these categories often overlap, and many scholarships are flexible in their criteria for who can apply.
External Scholarship Guides
Do you have children or a full-time job? Have you delayed enrolling in higher education for a few years? It may surprise you to learn that as a nontraditional student, you qualify for all types of scholarships, many of which are included in this guide.
Single parents face unique obstacles when they pursue higher education. These scholarships, exclusive to single parents, are designed to ease a single parent’s path to graduation, and support their goals to secure a better job and life for their family.
This thorough guide covers opportunities made available to persons of faith, including Catholic, Baptist, Lutheran, Methodist, and Presbyterian students. You’ll also see career-focused scholarships for students considering careers in ministry or counseling.
You don’t need to be an active member of the armed forces to qualify for a military scholarship. Veterans, as well as dependents, spouses, and children of past and present members of the armed forces are eligible for some scholarships (included in this guide), as well.
Scholarships for Students with Disabilities
According to the National Council on Disability, approximately 11% of undergraduate students (two million) report having a disability. This guide compiles scholarship opportunities for students with disabilities, including deafness, autism spectrum disorder (ASD), chronic illness, learning disabilities, physical disabilities, vision impairment, and more.
