USA Funds will begin accepting scholarship applications on line between December 15, 2010 – February 15, 2011 at www.usafunds.org/scholarship. Details about this scholarship program is currently posted on that website.
This is one of their major higher education access initiative, USA Funds Access to Education Scholarships. USA Funds will award $1,500 scholarships to students with economic need. Full-time and half-time undergraduates, as well as full-time graduate and professional students, are eligible for the awards. Up to 50 percent of the scholarships will be targeted to students who, in addition to demonstrating financial need, are members of an ethnic minority group or are physically disabled.
