2018 graduates pose for a picture in front of North Penn High School.

For many high schoolers, it may feel like college is looming over their heads, especially the cost. The extreme costs of colleges today cause some students to start working at just 14 years old or sacrifice their mental health to achieve good grades for scholarships. Scholarships can help relieve the cost of college, but they can also be extremely hard to get. With scholarships being so difficult to obtain, minorities can have an even harder time receiving scholarships.

According to Mark Kantrowitz, a publisher for (a free scholarship matching service) and, “[Minorities] are less likely to receive college scholarships. And they represent about a third of the applicants, but only about 28 percent of the recipients. Caucasian students receive 72 percent of all scholarships.”

All students should have an equal chance to receive scholarships, so the following list consists of scholarships for all races and nationalities.

Some scholarships are specifically for one race and will be sorted accordingly. These scholarships are by application and the application will either open soon or close soon for the 2018-2019 year.
