Scholarship and Retention Services

College Now offsets the high cost of college tuition by awarding renewable, need-based, last dollar scholarships to students across Northeast Ohio. Over the last few years, College Now’s scholarship recipients, those coming directly from high school and those who are adult learners, have experienced declining income and resources while postsecondary costs have risen, leaving a wide gap.

College Now seeks to fill that gap:

  • College Now awards $2.3 million in scholarships every year.
  • Nearly 2,000 students and adult learners receive a College Now scholarship each year.
  • Our scholarships are renewable, should students continue to meet grade requirements and income guidelines.

In addition, College Now manages scholarships on behalf of corporations and other organizations.

Learn more about College Now scholarships as well as our managed scholarships available to students. To be selected to receive a College Now scholarship, students must attend a high school served by a College Now advisor. Winners are selected based on recommendations by the advisor, and students must meet our criteria for academic performance (high school grades and SAT/ACT test scores) and have financial need.
