Outside Scholarship Opportunities for VU Students
The Vincennes University Foundation and Vincennes University receive many leads and contacts every year from non-university related organizations and foundations on possible scholarship opportunities for VU students.
The information provided below is by no means comprehensive for all possible scholarships. These are only those that have sent their information and applications or provided links to their websites. You should also check your local sources of scholarships. Many companies have scholarship programs for employees or children of employees. Fraternal organizations in your town might also have scholarship programs. Most Indiana counties have community foundations that award scholarships to local residents. Indiana students can check out this list of community foundations:
