Local Scholarship Database

  • With countless scholarships being offered nationwide, it is nearly impossible to advertise them all. However, with any scholarship opportunities that pass through our offices, we want to do our best to get the word out to students and parents. Below is a regularly updated database with scholarships offered by various colleges, universities and third-party organizations. Continue to check back or click "subscribe" on the scholarship database page to receive any updates.  Most scholarships in the database linked below are for seniors, but there is also a brief list of Scholarships for Juniors

Local Scholarships

  • Scholarships can be offered at multiple levels.  Students are encouraged to start at home and identify scholarships at the local level. These can include scholarships offered thru employers (students, parents), community connections (places of worship, civic organizations, etc.) and other community sponsors.  Local scholarship opportunities are usually less competitive since students will be competing against students from Cox Mill High School and/or Cabarrus County rather than against students across the region, state or nation.  
    Each year, the list of local scholarships changes, so be sure to keep an eye on our Scholarship Database and S3 Calendar.  Meanwhile, here is a list of local scholarships that have been presented in the past.  You can learn more about these scholarships by searching for them on Scholarship Plus.
