3 College Freshman

Scholarships: I am from Oregon therefore I am an out of state student paying about $10,000 more than in-state students. I received little financial aid to make up for the cost difference even with a great high school background, extra-curricular activities, community service, and high GPA.

Scholarships: It's a public school, so you probably won't get any scholarships from the school itself, but the aid you do get (from scholarships, loans, grants) they'll work to make sure goes through. Pro tip: they set a deadline at the beginning of the school year for you to get your aid in, but if you don't, you actually have a couple more weeks before you go onto a payment plan, so no worries.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: There are scholarships available in each of the colleges and majors, but too many of them. My college does sponsor other student competitions with cash rewards too though.

Scholarships: I got the financial aide I needed and also helps with other expenses besides tuition

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: Cal Poly automatically considers you for financial aid as a new student, although I did not receive any of their scholarships. However, I applied for the Cal Grant and was awarded a good amount through the school, but I still needed to apply for outside scholarships to help cover all the costs. I'm still trying to figure out how the process of being considered for the school's major-specific scholarships as a continuing student works.
