After applying for financial aid, looking at the scholarships offered through the university, and department funding opportunities students should seek out other opportunities offered through local non profits, clubs, and businesses. There are also several websites that list scholarships, thus doing a general web search may also yield potential scholarships.
Don't forget to also check with your employer, many employers often offer tuition reimbursements or other types of assistance. However, some companies will only offer financial support if the employee is seeking a degree closely related to the industry. Some employers also ask for a commitment to work for the company for a specific period of time. Never the less, it is an opportunity worth seeking out.
