Scholarships for Students from Rural Counties

Need money for college?  If you fit this profile, you might apply for a $5000-per-semester 4 year scholarship from the Hagan Scholarship Foundation:

  • High achievers (3.5 GPA)
  • with high financial need (FAFSA expected family contribution less than $7500)
  • from rural counties (less than 50,000 population)
  • in 10 states (AR, KS, IA, IL,IN,MO,NE, OK, KY,TN)

There are more criteria, but I love the idea of targeting high achievers from rural areas with financial need, as, from what I’ve seen in Montana, many of these students have been shortchanged on the kinds of high school classes and experiences that their big city counterparts enjoy.

Apparently, these scholarships have been awarded only in the last 3 years.  Last year, 114 students won awards.

Good luck!
