External Scholarships

Many private, third-party organizations provide scholarships. It may be worth your time to explore and apply for various scholarships from these organizations. 

Bear in mind, however, that each of these scholarship funds have their own requirements and set their own dates. Louisiana Tech University, is not responsible for these scholarships, and provides this list as simply as an information resource for students' convenience.
