Helpful Hints

York College Scholarships provide students with the right resources by informing them how and where to look for scholarships.

Most scholarships have few applicants, so we encourage you to apply to as many as you may qualify for.  Upon deciding that you would like to apply for any scholarship, you need to research them thoroughly. 

Keep in mind that there are many links to different scholarships. The process of researching may be stressful, so we came up with some ideas to help with the process. Here's some "Quick Tips" to help you get started and guide you along the way. If you have any questions you can visit our FAQ’s page or email us at

Some scholarships require Community or Volunteer Service. Click the Community/Volunteer Service Opportunities to find out more on how to volunteer.

Please Note: When applying to Scholarships outside of York College their screening process is different.  Please follow all the instruction on the specific scholarship.  If   you have been accepted to one of the scholarships outside of York College, the money would be sent to the college to be allocated and disbursed toward tuition. Please keep in mind that the criteria and deadlines may change every year or every other semester as well as the Application process. Therefore, you must read directions carefully and see if you meet the requirements for that scholarship and follow the directions for each one you apply for.  Please be aware of scams.

You can apply to as many scholarships as you like by going to our upcoming Scholarships or subscribe to us at Scholarship Subscription. Usually scholarships are given for the school year, so you must apply for the scholarships before the academic year. Allow yourself enough time to research, do all the required attached paperwork and have it proof read before sending.
