Can I apply for more than one scholarship or grant opportunity provided by my school of interest?


I am interested in any good school in Colorado, but some of them don't offer full ride scholarships(still doing my research on schools), can I apply for more than one scholarship in that same school of choice to relieve me of the financial burden as an international student?

Yes unless explicitly mentioned apply to as many as possible. Though some will be exclusive there was one school I looked at and there was a half tuition scholarship and another with free tuition obviously you can only have one. But 99% of the time merit and need awards stack. Merit tends to be the one with the most unstackable.

Hope this helps and please comment if you need clarification as I’d be happy to help clarify!

Thanks a lot @DebaterMAX! Well what school was that? And how best would you advise me to do my research on the aid packages? What are the things I should look out for? Any tips?!
A lot of the best resources are the website for the school itself and feel free to email the schools itself. The school I was referring to was Illinois Tech a private school. Also don’t pay to apply to scholarships also make sure you submit the application for both the scholarship and admissions as early as possible. I don’t really have any tips as I haven’t expierence even applying yet but talking/communicating with the admissions official is the best thing to do as they exist to help people
Apply to thier schools so reach out to them just don’t spam them.
Also is there a reason why you want to apply to only Colorado schools if it’s the geography try broadening your search as off the top of my head there isn’t a lot if any free ride schools. If you love the mountains try looking at Tennessee NM NMSt Wyoming Appalachian St. These are near mountains so it fits Colorado’s geography. If that isn’t why you are applying to Colorado schools tell me why you are and I can likely suggest more schools to look at. Looking at them doesn’t mean you will apply.
Noted thank you! Well the reason I am mostly specific with Colorado is because someone offered me accommodation and other basic stuff as I study there; a little bit of it being that I am not a rainy person and love mountains as well!
Accommodatains as in help for medical reasons or housing? Also I wouldn’t make the decision on where to go to just based on housing accommodations. Hope this helps!
For housing. I think you're right, I didn't really think about extending my search!
Collegevines find school tab is amazing the big 2 decisions is research as in big school or small liberal arts school. And then do you want to be in a big city or a college town. Also know what you want to major in then search based on that.
Goodness this is awesome, I am really thankful - thank you very much!!!
Personally I’d have a list of 3 major and know You should be happy with any of the majors. Some links to check out Glad I could help!
Certainly! Thank you very much.
Your welcome! Best of luck!
