I am a public school student writing a paper for my school newspaper about scholarships. I was wondering if it is harder for homeschooled students to get scholarships or if there are any specific scholarships for homeschoolers. I know my school has some scholarships just for students in my school through the alumi association and the school in general. There are also somes scholarships only avalible for students in my schools system (Boston Public Schools) from local universitys. I was wondering if anyone could tell me if there was anything similar for homeschoolers. Any information would be great, thanks!

Most scholarships are dependant only on you being a full-time student and maintaining a certain level of GPA, not so much on who you are. Since homeschoolers are (on average) better educated, I think you'll find that homeschoolers have an easier time getting those sorts of scholarships.

Not a whole lot of homeschooler-specific scholarships, to my knowledge.

I don't think it's any easier or any harder.
