Scholarship Description


AfterCollege believes that what's good for students is good for everyone: schools, employers, community, and other students! That’s why we not only help students find jobs & internships, but also offer scholarships to help fund their education. We have awarded more than $1,000,000 in scholarships and student activities through our program to date.

As a job and internship resource, our scholarships are for students who will be exemplary candidates in their field when the time comes to find an internship or job.
