Three Scholarships for Nontraditional Students

So many scholarships are aimed at young people coming to college straight out of high school that it can get discouraging for older students.  There are a few scholarships for nontraditional students, however.  Here are three.

The American Legion Auxilary offers a scholarship for members of the Auxilary, the American Legion, or the Sons of the Legion (a paid member for at least two years).  One scholarship is offered for each of their geographical regions, five in all for $2,000 apiece.  The deadline each year is March 1st. offers a $10,000 scholarship for single parents who are attending online or are attending a campus-based school with "a strong online component."  See their website for more information.

Executive Women International funds an Adult Student in Scholastic Transition (ASIST) scholarship. There are 12 total scholarships of $2500 apiece.

For more scholarships for nontraditional students--especially those in Michigan--see the Michigan State University website for individual grants.
