Conexus Scholarship Search

Below, wherever it says career, you want to type the career you are wanting to pursue (ie: veterinarian, teacher, mechanical engineer, etc.)


  1. Google Career, Scholarship

Take the first 5 companies you recognize, click on each one, and do the scholarship application.


  1. Google Career, Manufacturer

Take the first 5 companies you recognize, click on each one, and look for a scholarship application.


  1. Google Career, Trade Association

Take the first 5 companies you recognize, click on each one, and look for a scholarship application.

The benefit of doing this process is that since you’re looking under the topic of your career, you will find organizations who want to award college money to students who want to pursue that career. Also, since you’re looking all under one career, the scholarship topics will be similar and you can often use the same essays for each application, therefore saving a lot of time.



Also try using Google to search for scholarship of things that are unique to you or your family. Examples are to google “scholarships for children of firefighters,” “scholarships for students with ADHD,” “scholarships for students with red hair,” “scholarships for twins,” etc. Think outside the box.

Check any political, social, ethnic, or religious groups your family belongs to as well to see if they offer any scholarships.
