College Scholarships for Nontraditional Students

Looking for college scholarships for older, often referred to as “nontraditional students?  I would encourage you to visit the FastWeb scholarship database includes more than 50 awards that have a minimum age restriction of 30 years or older.

There are more than 230 awards with a minimum age restriction of 25 years or older. There are more than 1,800 awards with no age restrictions whatsoever.  Nontraditional students should submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid just like younger students.

Federal student aid generally does not have any age restrictions. The main exception is the Coverdell Education Savings Account, which requires the funds to be used by the time the beneficiary reaches age 30. Section 529 college savings plans, on the other hand, do not have any such age restrictions.
