Scholarship Match

Explore Scholarships for High School Students

Maximize money for school

College can be expensive, but there are ways to make it more affordable. Scholarships are free money for school.

Scholarships come in many forms—some focus on financial need, academics, a specific major, athletic ability, community involvement, and more. Encourage will help match you with scholarships that fit you best.

Scholarship matching tool

An important step in making college affordable is to apply for scholarships that match your needs, interests, and abilities. Encourage is a scholarship matching app, connecting you with scholarships that just make sense.

After you create your free Encourage account, we’ll ask a few questions about your preferences to match you with scholarships. Explore your matches to learn more about each scholarship’s award amount, application requirements, and deadline. Encourage allows you to save scholarships you wish to apply for and offers advice on applying and paying for school.

Financial aid beyond scholarships

Encourage doesn’t stop at scholarships! My Journey in the Encourage app offers valuable information about comparing college costs, talking with your family about finances, and how to make a college funding plan. You’ll even find a guide to completing your FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) and other state and other non-federal aid.​

My Journey also offers guidance and support throughout your financial aid journey. You’ll find a timeline and checklist that helps you track your financial aid milestones from grades 10-12.
