Scholarships

Scholarships may be based on academic performance, financial need, religious affiliation, minority status, heritage, community affiliations, or a unique set of criteria that is important to the organization providing funds. A few examples of such scholarships are as follows:

  • High schools or prospective colleges may award scholarships based on academic performance.
  • Ethnic organizations often provide scholarships to outstanding students sharing their respective ethnic backgrounds.
  • Many companies offer scholarships to employees and/or children of their employees.
  • Some houses of worship and religious denominations offer scholarships for their members or students planning a career in the clergy.
  • Some organizations sponsor scholarships to attract students to a field of study facing a shortage of workers, or to encourage non-traditional or minority students to pursue a specific degree.
The Scholarship Central Access Program maintains detailed lists of scholarships that are available to students within Muskingum County, as well as at the state and national levels. Important information and actual applications for a wide variety of scholarships may be obtained directly from the Scholarship Central office or downloaded from the website.
