Beginning today, students can apply for at least 180 Blinn scholarships by completing the application at by 5 p.m. Friday, March 31.

This year, funds from at least 180 endowed scholarships are available to incoming and returning students from a wide range of backgrounds, majors, academic standing and experiences. Though some scholarships are restricted to students who fit specific criteria, if a student who exemplifies those requirements does not apply, the scholarship may be offered to a wider range of students. Students are considered based on high academic achievement, participation in student activities, and community involvement.

Students also can fill out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) at Institutions will begin processing information from the FAFSA in March and April.

“When students file for aid and apply for scholarships early, they significantly increase their chances of receiving funds,” said Brent Williford, Dean of Financial Aid & Scholarships. “Not only is it important for students to fill out the FAFSA, but they also should follow up and make certain they aren’t missing any information.”

Students who have applied for admission to Blinn College will be notified through MyBlinn when their aid processing has begun and can find updates throughout the process at

Blinn endowed scholarships are made possible in part by the Blinn College Foundation, which works with community partners to make thousands of dollars available to deserving students. For more information on the Foundation and its mission, visit:
