Delaware Scholarships could almost say it's where it all began. Delaware achieved statehood in 1787; it was the first state admitted into the Union. It's one of the smallest states in the nation but also one of the most historical. This makes it a great place to study American history and much else besides.

There are 12 colleges and universities in the state and they run the gamut from the smaller community colleges to the large University of Delaware, which has nearly 22,000 students. The state's top industries include banking and finance, education, healthcare and farming.

In addition to merit-based and need-based scholarships, there are also tuition wavers and loan forgiveness plans offered by the state. In the private sector, there are a host of scholarship opportunities both for in state and out of state applicants.

The links below should provide you with a clearer picture of the scholarship opportunities available in the state of Delaware.
