College Scholarships from Outlaw Student

$10,000 Scholarship Drawing — Apply by October 31, 2011

formerly StraightForward Media Scholarships offers a variety of different $500 scholarships to students every year. You may recognize these programs: from 2003 to early 2010, they were known as the StraightForward Media Scholarship Programs. We’ve now separated them from our advertising agency website and implemented them under the banner of the Outlaw Student site.

Each of our scholarship programs is open to both American and international students, and we offer scholarships to attendees of four-year colleges, two-year and community colleges, vocational and technical schools.

Unless otherwise noted, all scholarships awards are $500 and are given four times per year.

We maintain separate websites for most of our scholarships, and you can find links to each below and in the navigation bar above.

This is a very good thing although in Uganda very few people know about the existence of such scholarships. Ugandans are very interested in reading books and research although we have a problem of funds.

I love looking for scholarship I love this page. It is hard to find the right scholarship to apply for.

I have a quick question, maybe someone has an answer for me.

How do you know which scholarships are legitimate, and not completely a bunch of bologna?

I’ve looked at a few sites, and one of them is even listed above. HOWEVER, I was curious, so I googled “ legit” and several sources say that it is just a way for a company to get my information and sell it to other companies so they can spam me about a bunch of non-relating information. (By the way, I’m talking about the first link,
It takes you to a page, and you click the first link that takes you to the site I’m talking about. Anyhow, they say that it isn’t so “legit.” So back to my question, how do you know which is okay, and which isn’t?

Also, I’d like to ask again if that first link is okay. I’m really liking this Web site, and it’s helping me a lot, very fabulous advice. I’m a High School Senior right now, and I’m looking into scholarships, as I’ve picked what college I want to go to, and I still have to apply for there, I’m hoping it works out! But most of all, I’m trusting this site a lot. So, do I dare apply for these scholarships?

Thank you.

These are rad scholarships. I’m going to assume, since they came from a real-live scholarship judge’s website, that they’re legit and that a judge, of all people, wouldn’t try to scam me.

According to my own analysis, thousands of people in the world get loans from well known banks. So, there’s good possibilities to get a small business loan in every country.

I would like to know what the privacy policy is for applying for the scholarship on this website.

I understand being discouraged with the scholarship process. I have been applying for scholarships for more that 20 years-beginning with an underpriveleged childhood, through single parenthood, loss of a partner, recovery from a brain tumor…well, you get the picture. I have poured my heart out, writing about my goals, my successes, my perseverence, my excellent grades, the many obstacles, etc.- without ever receiving a single scholarship. I doubt that I will receive one at this point, since I have my MS degree Psychology and Counseling, specializing in Addiction Recovery and Criminal Rehabilitation, however my student loans are astronomical. All this to help people for barely enough money to live on! Since being laid off over a year ago due to funding cuts in social services, I can’t even find a job! However, I continue my studies and volunteer work to add to my knowledge and experience and hope that someday what I have done will mean something.

I am a victim of divorced home,and I am aspiring to do education so as to build the lives of children that are affected or have been affected.
Is it possible for a scholarship to be awarded a person to attend school in their country

Good morning,
I read your column of practical advice regularly. Thank you for this useful information.

I have a question: My daughter, a 30 yr old US citizen, has been accepted into a Canadian university (it falls under the FAFSA scheme, so she is eligible for a Stafford Loan). However, this does not cover her living costs for the year, which she has to prove in order to get the Canadian study permit. She herself has no savings at all. She has been advised to try for the Sallie Mae or Chase private loans. Does she need a US/Canadian co-signer? We, as her parents are retired, living in Europe and do not have the financial means to help her at all. We are unable to obtain a bank loan here either, due to our age (we are both over 65). She will only be allowed to work off campus after 6 months of studies. The problem therefore is “merely” to obtain sufficient in loans for the Study Permit to be granted and for her to survive for the first 6 months (I believe this is an amount of $20 000) – We would hate her to lose this opportunity of completing her studies!

Your advice would be most welcome! (We are not US citizens, but live in Europe).
