Delta State among best for private scholarships

By June 17, 2016Academics, Students

LendEDU, an online resource for information on student loans, recently ranked Delta State University among the Top 150 universities in the nation for providing private scholarships.

Utilizing data licensed from Peterson’s (https://www.petersons.com), LendEDU calculated the average amount of non-need based private scholarship funding per student at 1,000 colleges and universities. Delta State came in at No. 131 on the list.

“Clearly, the top ranked schools are doing a great job encouraging their students to seek additional sources of scholarship funding,” said LendEDU, in a press release. “We think the results of our study are interesting, relevant and eye opening. Before you apply for a student loan, you should look for scholarships and grants to help cover your cost of attendance. Scholarships are a great way to finance your education. Unlike student loans, scholarships do not need to be paid back. And, according to College Board, there is $122 billion in scholarship funding awarded to students each year.”

LendEDU’s study found that on average, the students winning the most private scholarships are coming from small to mid-sized schools.

Founded in 2014, LendEDU was created to help student loan borrowers find transparency without damaging their credit.
