Top scholarships for high school seniors to apply for:
The scholarship and financial aid resources listed on this page are those that are specifically for high school seniors.  These are not, however, the only scholarships available for high school seniors; check out our freshmansophomore, and junior scholarships pages (see the icons at the top left corner) for more scholarships for high school seniors, i.e. for those for which not only high school seniors, but also freshmen, juniors and sophomores compete.  That is, the scholarships listed on this page are not the only ones available for high school seniors; rather, they are the ones for which only seniors could apply, although, as you can see on our other pages, seniors can also apply for many funding resources for which students at other levels can also apply! Note also that all of the scholarships listed here (meaning on this specific page) are college scholarships for high school seniors (for private high school scholarships, visit this page). The list is regularly updated (with new additions and deletions, where necessary); the following list is valid for the academic years 2013-2014 & 2014-2015.  Also visit our new scholarships page for some of the most recent listings (those submitted most recently to our website by scholarship providers).  Contact us at info@highscholarships.com if you are a scholarships provider and want a free listing of your scholarship on this page. Unlike other scholarship and financial aid websites, we do not require membership to access the resources provided on our pages.

Finally, don't forget to check our other pages, scholarships for high school freshman, sophomores and juniors (clicking on the icons at the top left corner of this page), where scholarships that are open to all high school students (which often include seniors, too) are covered, among others.  Note though that they will be slightly more competitive since these are open to other grade levels, too, not just to seniors. On the other hand, it is conceivable that fewer students from other grades will apply for these for a variety of reasons (see main page for our account of why this is the case).
