Private scholarships are sometimes slated for very specific applicants such as students with a particular career interest or members of a certain church or professional organization.

Many private-sector organizations offer scholarships to students as a part of their philanthropic activities. Participating organizations have created funds for students and are eager to give them to qualified individuals.

You can investigate these opportunities by using the Web sites listed below, or through other free scholarship searches online. You may also contact clubs or other organizations directly to determine whether they offer scholarship opportunities.

Please only use FREE scholarship searches. The Carey Business School does not endorse any of the organizations included.  We simply offers these resources to assist you with your research for outside scholarships to help you pay for your post-secondary education.
