Awards Ceremony


Outside Scholarships

Privately-funded scholarships are those awarded through sources outside Reynolds.  You may be eligible for an outside award from a variety of sources including employers, unions, professional organizations, the military, community, religious, and special interest groups. These types of scholarships have specific applications, eligibility requirements, and deadlines.

 Reynolds does not guarantee the availability or fairness of administration of these scholarships. Students pursue them at their own risk. It is the student’s responsibility to obtain the necessary materials, complete applications, and submit them directly to the sponsoring organization for review and fund distribution.  Helpful tips for conducting your own scholarship search can be found in Christopher S. Penn's e-book: Scholarship Search Secrets, 6th ed., A Publication of the Student Loan Network.

We recommend that you avoid any scholarship offer that requires you to pay a fee, attend a seminar, or claims a guarantee. Also, be cautious should a program request personal information such as bank account, credit card or Social Security numbers. 

Although the Reynolds Scholarship Office does not coordinate private scholarships, we make an effort to promote familiar opportunities and resources.
