Spring Scholarships

It’s been a long winter and we’re more than ready to welcome spring with open arms.

To get you thinking spring, we searched our database for our top spring-themed scholarships.

When we think spring, we think of planting flowers, singing in showers and, of course, rebirth (aka, baby animals). Also, sunshine and lots of eco-efforts because of Earth Day. So, that was the basis for our list.

This list is mainly for your entertainment and springtime inspiration, so you likely won’t qualify for all of the scholarships listed below since many are school, location or major-specific. The best way to find scholarships you’re eligible for is to check your scholarship matches.

Note: Those with passed deadlines will appear at the bottom of the list, just in case you want to keep an eye out to apply next year.

It’s time to spring into your scholarship search and get inspired with the following list of spring-themed scholarships:
