Students in New Hampshire may be excited to know that there are a number of grants that were created to help them fund their college studies. Some of these grants are only open to residents of New Hampshire while others are open to students from out-of-state who are attending a college or university within New Hampshire.
One of the best ways to get your scholarship search started is to complete the FAFSA. This will tell you whether you are eligible for any state funding from New Hampshire. In addition, students may want to check with the financial aid department at their college or university to determine whether there are any institution specific scholarships that they qualify for. As an added step, students may want to check with their academic department about available scholarships as there are typically awards available to students majoring in specific fields (i.e., education). In addition to these steps, check out the below list of New Hampshire Scholarships:
The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics Foundation Scholarships provide awards ranging from $500 to $10,000 per student. In order to be eligible to apply for this award, students must be members of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics Foundation. Furthermore, students must be studying a field related to dietetics. Some scholarships are required for students from underrepresented backgrounds while other scholarships may require students to complete a residency in a certain state. Criteria information for the various scholarships can be found here: http://www.eatrightfoundation.org/Foundation/scholarships/.
New Hampshire Scholarships for Orphans of Veterans offers scholarships of varying amounts. These awards are open to students who have had a parent die in the line of duty. Children of workers who were disabled as a result of their work for NH are also eligible for this award. The amount of the award varies and can be applied to the cost of tuition, textbooks, room and board, and other student feed. Students are required to attend an eligible New Hampshire public college or university in order to be eligible for a full tuition waiver. Additional information can be found at this website: http://education.nh.gov/highered/.

In order to be eligible, students must be from one of the New England states. Any full-time college student or high school senior is eligible to apply for this award. Students must have been accepted into a program and intend to major in a field related to floriculture.
