Scholarships with No Essays and No Essay Contests

We have heard the requests for a list of scholarships without essays. We know that scholarships with no essay requirement would be great. However, the scholarship with no essay is a hard-to-find scholarship. There are plenty of scholarship essay contests. It can be SO VERY FRUSTRATING to write scholarship essay after essay and then be denied ANY scholarship. We would like to see more scholarships that would somehow award the money based on some other requirement than an essay.  However, it seems that a majority of college grants and scholarships require some type of essay. It is understandable how the sponsors of college scholarships for students would want to know more about the applicant through the use of an essay. After all, the sponsors want to know if the applicant has the ability to take that money and succeed.

 

YouTube Video:  How to Find College Grants and Scholarships is a short six-minute video that gives you an overall look at where to find college grants and scholarships. If you have no idea on where to start to find financial aid, then this video will give you a good idea on how to go about finding free money in the form of financial aid, grants, and scholarships for college or trade schools for a variety of groups of people such as nursing students, single moms, women, traditional students, non-traditional students, and just about any U.S. Citizen seeking scholarships with the least amount of eligibility requirements.

List of NO ESSAY Scholarships: Episode 1. Updated January 2019. We know that many students want scholarships with NO essay requirement, so we will mention this video, here. This YouTube video will provide information on ten scholarships for college that do NOT require an essay. The TEN NO ESSAY scholarships listed in this YouTube video are not listed on this web page. These scholarships have a minimum amount of requirements, so almost any U.S. citizen may apply for these scholarships. Some of these scholarships ask you to fill out an online application while others request that you answer a short quiz or question. However, most people would consider the application process “easy.” Definitely, NO ESSAY is required for these scholarships.

Following is a list of additional scholarships with NO ESSAYS involved. We continue to research college grants and scholarships. When we find a no essay scholarship, we will add it to the list. We know that there are plenty of scholarship essay contests, but hardly any "no essay contests."

However, for now, here is a short list of college scholarships where no essay is required. Please remember that MORE are listed on the YouTube video: List of NO ESSAY Scholarships: Episode 1. Updated January 20

 


PLEASE NOTE: BE CAREFUL:

We decided to write the following statement about being careful on applying for scholarships that MAY no longer be available. From our experience of trying to list scholarships that are currently available, we have found that many scholarships stay on the World Wide Web, although the organizations that at one time funded the scholarships, NO LONGER fund the scholarship. We have found that all the information is on the organization's web page, BUT, the date for applying for that scholarship may be a couple years old. Our best advice is that IF a scholarship is listed on a web page AND the date of application is more than a year old, then it is VERY PROBABLE that the scholarship is NOT AVAILABLE. Our best advice is that if you are interested in a scholarship that has older information, then PLEASE TRY TO CONTACT them to see IF the scholarship is currently being offered. Definitely, a number of organizations may delay funding a scholarship for a year or two. However, there are many scholarships that are found on web pages that have been there for years that have NOT been funded for years.

Sallie Mae Fund Scholarship Program

Sponsor: The Sallie Mae Fund

We have modified this listing a number of times because Sallie Mae has made a number of changes to their website and information over the years.


For a number of years, scholarships provided by Sallie Mae seem to come and go. The thing to keep in mind is that apparently Sallie Mae will provide some scholarships, but you need to keep checking their website or organization in some way. As of this writing, the main web page to contact for scholarship information is: https://www.salliemae.com/plan-for-college/scholarships/.


There have been a couple of things that have continued over the years:

  1. Occasionally, Sallie Mae will provide scholarships, BUT they change.
  2. Sallie Mae has added a free scholarship search service. You need to register.
  3. Some of the scholarships listed by Sallie Mae have had almost no requirements, including NO ESSAY. You need to keep checking the website.


Please use the following link for current information about Sallie Mae's scholarships: https://www.salliemae.com/plan-for-college/scholarships/.

There is some VERY GOOD information about scholarships and about searching for scholarships at this website. Sallie Mae is a very well-respected educational source

Scholarships for Moms provided a Scholarship for Dads. HOWEVER, as of 2018, their website says that Scholarships for Dads is NO LONGER available.

We will keep this Scholarships for Dads listed on our website for now. Maybe it will be funded at a later date.
