Scholarships for Liberal Arts Majors

A liberal arts degree can be stepping-stone to a great career, as liberal arts graduates are ideal candidates for a broad range of positions. But before you can reap the benefits of a liberal arts degree, you need to figure out how to fund your college education. There are many scholarships available to liberal arts majors that are awarded by nonprofit foundations, individual schools and other groups and organizations. Applicant requirements vary, but most include the candidate being currently enrolled or accepted at an accredited 4- or 2-year school and having a good academic record. Financial need also might be considered. Scholarship applicants may be required to submit letters of recommendation and a personal essay, among other documentation.
