The Updated Full Scholarship List is Out!
This post was first published in February 2015. If you are reading it after that, the Full Scholarship List has grown much larger. The latest version, 7.1, was published 3-13-2019 and contains over 1,180 scholarships. You can still purchase the list through the links below.
Yesterday, I published an updated Full Scholarship List. I review the full list twice a year, basically summer and winter, to see what has changed.
The Full Scholarship List focuses on merit scholarships offered directly by colleges, mostly full tuition scholarships and full ride scholarships. There are a lot of great opportunities out there for top students! And I know I haven’t even identified every great scholarship out there.
The Updated Full Scholarship List By the Numbers:
- 48 full tuition scholarships that are automatic for National Merit scholars (finalists and/or semi-finalists)
- 32 full ride scholarships that are automatic for National Merit scholars
- 23 competitive scholarships open to National Merit scholars
- 348 scholarships based on ACT/SAT scores, GPA, and/or other merit/leadership criteria
- 24 full-tuition and full-ride scholarships that are automatic for students having ACT scores of 30 or lower (minimum score varies by scholarship)
- 179 competitive scholarship opportunities that do not require a specific minimum ACT or SAT score or National Merit status
- 11 automatic scholarship opportunities that do not require a specific minimum ACT or SAT score or National Merit status (some of these are automatic for all valedictorians/salutatorians)
There are a lot of merit-based full tuition scholarships and full ride scholarships available to top students and I would argue that a strong student should never need to pay anywhere near full sticker price if he or she is willing to shop around for opportunities. Of course the reality is that it is usually the parents doing the shopping around! If you don’t want to miss any of these great merit scholarship opportunities, my Full Scholarship List is the most complete and most up-to-date resource available to find them.

I am very interested in the 24 full-tuition and full-ride scholarships that are automatic for students having ACT scores of 30 or higher ( I realize GPA is probably a factor as well). Is there a way to sort the list for those schools?

You can filter the list (by clicking on the arrows in row 1) for Automatic scholarships and then for ACT scores that are at or lower than the level you want to see. You can filter the Award column also if you don’t want to see anything less than full-tuition.
