Scholarship Services

Figuring out how to pay for college can be an enormous source of stress for students and their parents. Scholarship awards help defray college costs, providing a source of funding that does not need to be repaid after graduation—­­­unlike student loans.

Sometimes, though, there is a misconception that scholarships are only available to students who perform at the top of their classes academically or who are star athletes. In reality, there are many scholarships available to students based on a wide range of factors.

HelloCollege’s scholarship services can help you create a scholarship plan, identify possible opportunities for which you may qualify and meet sometimes rigorous application requirements.

Scholarship Consultant Services Go Beyond Lists

Our college scholarship services provide students and their families with information that can be difficult, or even impossible, to find independently. A financial expert will work closely with you to review your situation and leverage financial aid offers you may have received in the college admissions process.

We will then create a customized plan for you, showing the potential for outside scholarships you may not have known were available. Students can also take advantage of online scholarship search services, including workshops and our Senior Scholarship Bootcamp. Scholarship application services offer practical guidance and resources, making it easier to manage the process.

All of our scholarship services focus on helping students identify opportunities and increase their chances of receiving scholarship awards. We also offer a free Scholarship Search Directory for college-bound students and their parents. HelloCollege’s scholarship search services can help you identify general scholarship opportunities, college-specific scholarships, scholarships related to specific categories or major fields of study or scholarships specifically for international students.

Simply put, these college scholarship services do more than give you access to lists. When taking advantage of the scholarship consultant services available from HelloCollege, you can be confident that we will work closely with you to identify and apply for scholarship opportunities based on your needs and goals.
