    Hello Destiny,

    Remember, scholarships are funds from private entities (Not Federal financial aid dollars…those cant be race based) and they can choose to give those funds to whoever they wish. Believe me when I say that there are many scholarships that you do qualify for, and that people of all backgrounds receive every year.

    I am an African American who had to use student loans to fund my entire my undergrad and graduate degree. I didn’t qualify for anything either. But the student loans provided me a way to pay for my education, and I will gladly repay the loans in full.

    Good luck with your education, thanks for sharing.

      There are, in fact, “white” scholarships, but not under such a name. I went to a Danish school and received a Danish scholarship (Danish ancestry plus grades, test scores, essay, etc.). Of course, in this day and age, there are many non-whites who could qualify, just as there are many mixed students who can qualify for minority scholarships without being 100% whatever.
