Scholarships and grants are gift aid, meaning you do not have to repay them or earn the funds by working. There are many different types of scholarships a student could receive. Below are resources that students can use to search for additional scholarships.

Scholarships from all sources can be a great way to bring down to overall amount of money that a student needs to borrow. It is important for students understand how scholarship funding can impact your financial aid award.

Students can receive more than one type of financial aid. An award package may include a combination of scholarships, grants, and other types of assistance, such as loans and work-study.

Boston University Scholarships are generously provided by each individual school/college within BU, as well as the University at large, for students across a variety of  programs.

Private Scholarships are provided by organizations across a variety of public and private organizations, to assist students with gift funds to apply towards their educational expenses. We encourage students to pursue scholarship opportunities in their local communities, as well as on a national level.
