State Scholarships
While it's true the federal government is the single largest provider of financial aid for college students, there is still more money available from local and state governments which totals over $3 billion each year allocated for all 50 states. Each state has its own individual guidelines for applying for their student aid, and there is usually a residency requirement necessary.

Collectively, the number of state scholarships, grants and fellowships numbers well into the thousands. But in this section you'll find a basic compilation of financial assistance programs organized by their administering state higher education agency.
