Private Scholarships

Scholarship Search Engines

One of the best ways to search for scholarships and grants is to use a personalized search that compares your background with a database of awards. Only those awards that fit your profile are identified as matches for you to review. There are several free scholarship databases available online. Reputable ones are listed below. If you supply an email address, they will notify you when new awards that match your profile are added to the database. You can even submit electronic applications to many scholarships listed in the databases — saving you time and money. Click here to access a list of sites we recommend.

Actual Private Scholarships

Scholarship organizations send Milton Hershey School information on their awards. Our College and Career Counselor staff compiles a list of these scholarships and updates the list periodically as needed. Most private scholarship application dates range from November through May so pay close attention to the application deadline to make sure it has not expired already.

Just click the following link to open the most recent version of our scholarship information.

In addition to scholarship search engines and the awards that Milton Hershey School has directly been sent information about, there are other scholarship resources available. Please find a list of links to other sites that may contain information on scholarships and grants that you could qualify to receive. Since MHS does not control these referenced sites, please direct all inquiries to the scholarship provider, not MHS. Find a list of resources here.
