Many SIPA students receive aid from outside sources such as charitable or professional organizations, their employers, philanthropic groups, or government agencies. This section includes a comprehensive searchable database of such resources and links to scholarship search engines.

We monitor and update this section regularly.  Please be aware that during the pandemic some organizations may have changed their philanthropic plans.  We kindly request that if you come across any error or discover that funding is no longer available from a source on this site, please notify us at [email protected] so that we can update the information accordingly.

We encourage students to seek external sources of funding, but we also want you to be aware that there are scams in this space.  Be suspicious of scholarships that request personally identifiable information up front, credit card or bank account numbers, application sites that are poorly written, providers that conspicuously ask for social media likes or shares, those that appear to be idea harvesting or soliciting your intellectual property, or unrelated commercial enterprises that may just be collecting email addresses to sell.  We make every attempt to include only what we believe to be legitimate scholarship providers in our database; if you have any concerns about any you find here or elsewhere and would like guidance, please contact us.
