Outside Scholarships

Outside scholarships are those in which the donor specifies the person who will receive the funding. The donor may be someone the student knows, such as the student's employer or their church, or the scholarship may be funded through a separate private program.

For Donors Sending Funds to Blinn College on Behalf of a Student

Online Payment

We strongly encourage donors to submit scholarship funds using the college’s electronic check payment process. This allows scholarships to be sent using a swift, safe, and secure online payment system. Access our Donor Payment Form Quick Guide for instructions on using this method.

Standard Mail

Financial Aid Office

Checks for outside scholarships should NOT be sent to the Blinn Business Office.

The donor must include:

  • recipient name
