There are many great resources available for both incoming and current students other than University Scholarships. We gladly advertise any outside scholarship opportunities that have been brought to our attention by credible sources, but these do not begin to cover the numerous opportunities that are available for all student-types. We also encourage students to reach out to community organizations such as churches, clubs, local businesses, etc. to find all available awards. Please click the links below for information regarding teacher education scholarships external to Appalachian State University. The opportunities listed below are scholarships specific to education. For a comprehensive list of all external scholarship opportunities, search through the list on the University Scholarship page. The University does not manage these scholarships nor associating applications.
Identity Theft and Scam Warning Signs
Scholarships that require an application fee are most likely a scam. Never give out your social security number or bank information for a scholarship. Legitimate sponsors should provide contact information upon request. If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.
