College application season is in full swing. People are busy researching degree options, comparing schools, and above all, trying to figure out how to pay for it all. Here at STEPS, we’re always looking for ways to help students pay for school, especially those who have decided to give back by pursuing a degree and career in public service.
While there are plenty of scholarship lists online, we wanted to make sure students going into public service degree programs had a dedicated, up-to-date resource for finding scholarships. The end result is our new scholarships guide. Students can search, read about, and apply to scholarships in 9 different public service fields, including teaching, criminal justice, public health, and social work. You can review the full scholarship list at the link below. I’ve also included a link to our companion financial aid guide, which covers other funding options for public service students, including earning money through programs such as AmeriCorps, the Peace Corps, and the TEACH grant.
