External Scholarships

External scholarships are offered by organizations and foundations outside Benedictine University. Some of the best resources for scholarships are organizations your family is associated with such as parent's employer, ethnic heritage groups, Lions Club, nonprofit volunteer organizations, community organizations, high schools, etc.

Scholarships are a great resource to help pay for your education. BenU lists below several organizations that establish scholarships to help meet the financial needs of our students. Visit our endowed scholarships for more details on how to apply for these scholarships. Additionally, many scholarships are offered by third-party organizations, look through these search engines: fastweb scholarships, U.S. Dept of Labor, just remember, do not pay for what you can do for free.

At Benedictine, typically any external scholarship goes 100% directly to the student’s account.
