Adult/Returning Students


Scholarships for adult or returning students are designed for individuals who are returning to school after a period of time, or who are older than the traditional college-age student. These scholarships are designed to help individuals who are pursuing a college education later in life, and can help cover the cost of tuition, fees, and other related expenses.

Here are a few examples of scholarships for adult or returning students:

  • The AARP Foundation Women's Scholarship Program provides scholarships to women over the age of 50 who are pursuing a college education.
  • The Ford ReStart Program provides scholarships to individuals who have been out of school for five or more years and are pursuing a degree in a field related to technology, engineering, or math.
  • The National Adult Learner's Scholarship provides scholarships to individuals who are over the age of 25 and are returning to school to complete their education.
  • The Patsy Takemoto Mink Education Foundation provides scholarships to low-income women and mothers who are pursuing a college education.

It's important to check the specific requirements, deadlines, and application process for each scholarship and to apply for several scholarships to increase your chances of getting one. Additionally, you can also check with the financial aid office of the college or university you are interested in attending for information on scholarships and other financial aid options for adult and returning students.
