Everything You Need to Know About Inside Scholarships at Meredith

Applying to college can hold many layers of stress, the most common being financial. Add on the task of applying for financial aid and scholarships and the entire process can quickly become overwhelming.

So, how can you alleviate that stress? A good place to start is with inside scholarships. These are scholarships that are funded by the institution and granted to admitted students only. This means you don’t have to compete with thousands of other students attending different institutions, which can sometimes be the case with outside scholarships.

And at Meredith, many of our inside scholarships don’t require several different applications, making the process even easier for you as a student.

Here are just a few of the inside scholarships at Meredith you may be eligible for:
