Few non-institutional scholarships are available for the graduate or professional educational level. Nonetheless, it doesn’t hurt to use sites like fastweb.com and collegenet.com to find awards you might be eligible for. Another site worth visiting is Michigan Sate University’s list of grants.
Varsity Tutors Scholarship Contest:

Visitors to the Varsity Tutors scholarship webpage are able to vote via social media for submitted entries. The top five entries with the most votes are reviewed by Varsity Tutors at the end of the month and one winner is subsequently chosen to receive the $1,000 college scholarship.
