10,000 Degrees Scholarships


The 10,000 Degrees Scholarships application opens every year on October 15th and the priority deadline for submission is March 2nd of the following year. The application will be open until all scholarship funds are administered. All supplemental materials must be uploaded to the online application or postmarked on the same date as your submission. Incomplete submissions will not be considered. It is your responsibility to respond to all requests for information in a timely manner.

All applications must be submitted online, and some scholarships require additional documents, so please read directions carefully to ensure you submit everything required.
