College Scholarships that are NO Longer Active

We have decided to list some of the scholarships that we took off our website because they are no longer active. We are providing this list for these reasons:

  1. You may have heard the old saying that once something is on the Web that it is there forever.  It can be difficult understanding whether a scholarship listed on the Web is still active or the sponsor stopped funding it. This list may help decide which scholarships are still active or no longer being funded.

  2. The list shows how frustrating it is trying to find scholarships. Many scholarships come and go. Some scholarships have been available every year for a number of years, but the organization decided to get out of the scholarship business. However, some businesses decided to fund a scholarship for only one year and then give it up. I suspect many organizations do this for one year in order to get the publicity for marketing their business. Something must not work out for them.

  3. It is possible that some of the scholarships on this list will once again become available. It IS questionable, though. If you think that some of these sponsors have decided to fund a scholarship again, then you can use the title of the scholarship or name of the sponsor to perform a Google search in order to find more information.

  4. PLEASE NOTE: BE CAREFUL:

    We decided to write this statement about being careful on applying for scholarships that MAY no longer be available. From our experience of trying to list scholarships that are currently available, we have found that many scholarships stay on the World Wide Web, although the organizations that at one time funded the scholarships, NO LONGER fund the scholarship. We have found that all the information is on the organization's web page, BUT, the date for applying for that scholarship may be a couple years old. Our best advice is that IF a scholarship is listed on a web page AND the date of application is more than a year old, then it is VERY PROBABLE that the scholarship is NOT AVAILABLE. Our best advice is that if you are interested in a scholarship that has older information, then PLEASE TRY TO CONTACT them to see IF the scholarship is currently being offered. Definitely, a number of organizations may delay funding a scholarship for a year or two. However, there are many scholarships that are found on web pages that have been there for years that have NOT been funded for years.

 


Talbot’s Women’s Scholarship Fund


Sponsor: Talbots, INC.

We will keep this on the list for now but after a number of years of providing generous scholarships to women, it appears that Talbot's no longer is funding scholarships. We keep this on the list so you can keep checking to see if they changer their minds. The following is the description of the scholarships that Talbot's once funded.


Eligibility Requirements: Six women will each be awarded $10,000 scholarships, and 60 women will each be awarded $1,000 scholarships. All applicants must be seeking an undergraduate degree from an accredited two- or four-year college or university, or vocational-technical school. Only applicants seeking a bachelor's degree from a four-year college or university are eligible to receive a $10,000 award. Scholarship awards are based primarily on financial need and previous achievements for women who earned their high school diploma or GED at least 10 years ago.


Money: Six women will each be awarded $10,000 scholarships, and 60 women will each be awarded $1,000 scholarships.

WalMart Scholarships

WalMart no longer provides the Sam Walton Community Scholarship. However, they do provide a few other scholarships that some people will be eligible for applying, so we will keep this link on the website, for now. Hopefully, WalMart will decide to continue something like the Sam Walton Community Scholarship at a later date.

WalMart provides scholarships for their associates and dependents of associates, BUT the Sam Walton Community Scholarship was for ANYONE in the community. This particular scholarship is NOT for the WalMart associate. Sam Walton Community Scholarship is for high school or home school seniors graduating or earning a GED.

Money award was $3,000.

Advancing Women in STEM Scholarship


Sponsor: Zenefits.

It looks to us in 2017 that this scholarship is no longer available. Their scholarship website states the year 2015 on their web page. There does not seem to be an easy way to contact them, either. For now, we are considering this scholarship inactive until we hear otherwise.

Eligibility: Women earn almost 60% of all bachelor's degrees in the United States, but they earn only 20% of computer science degrees, 20% of physics degrees, and 18% of engineering degrees. And estimates show that by 2018, the U.S. will face a shortage of more than one million STEM workers. This presents an enormous opportunity to better support young women in pursuing STEM-related careers, and Zenefits is committed to being part of the solution.

The topic of the 500 word essay is located at the website.

To be eligible for this scholarship, you must be a woman who: Is currently enrolled as a full-time college student in the United States; Has completed at least one full academic year of college with a GPA of 3.0 or above; Is pursuing a degree related to science, technology, mathematics, or engineering; and has clearly expressed financial need to support educational goals.

“For the past four scholarships, our judges have had a very challenging time choosing finalists, and once finalists have been chosen, the finalists haven't followed through with providing proof of school enrollment or citizenship. It's been as frustrating for us as it has for you, our applicants and customers. We've continued to get further and further behind in the process and feel more and more overwhelmed with each new program.

With this in mind, we've decided to put the next scholarship on hold so we can focus on clearing up loose ends from our previous scholarships. Hopefully this will all be done so that there will be time to run the regular Winter 2013 scholarship with a January 31st, 2013 deadline.

The following resources will help you find more active scholarships, BUT more information is available on our other web pages.

YouTube Video:  How to Find College Grants and Scholarships is a short six-minute video that gives you an overall look at where to find college grants and scholarships. If you have no idea on where to start to find financial aid, then this video will give you a good idea on how to go about finding free money in the form of financial aid, grants, and scholarships for college or trade schools for a variety of groups of people such as nursing students, single moms, women, and just about any U.S. Citizen seeking scholarships with the least amount of eligibility requirements.

Fastweb is another very popular free scholarship search service that allows the student to pick a number of options for their "profile."

College Grants and Scholarships with the Minimum Amount of Eligibility Requirements is a Kindle ebook that lists approximately 150 college scholarships that have the least amount of eligibility requirements, so that just about any U.S citizen or legal resident can apply for these scholarships. There are only so many scholarships for a specific group of people, whether it is Hispanic, single mothers, women, nursing students, veterans, or other groups. This ebook can provide a list of more available scholarships. Some of these scholarships require writing an essay while others require filling out just an application. There are NOT many scholarships available without specific, limiting criteria. There are many resources that will list thousands of scholarships, but a majority of them will have very specific requirements that prevents many students from applying to most of the scholarships listed in the resources. However, this Kindle ebook lists scholarships that most people within the U.S. can apply for. If you do not have a Kindle, you can download the free Kindle Previewer in order to view Kindle books on your PC at http://www.amazon.com/gp/feature.html/?docId=1000765261 OR https://kdp.amazon.com/self-publishing/help?topicId=A3IWA2TQYMZ5J6 . We know how difficult it is to format documents for the Kindle so the formatting might be kind of strange for some of the text. However, we find the text tolerable and the links work.
