Making a Difference Scholarships is a unique guide written especially for caring students. The guide lists distinguished scholarships awarded for social service, "social entrepreneur" funds for young people who start their own non-profits, college-based service scholarships, and fellowships for studies such as labor, peace, and the environment.

While most scholarship guides are filled with obscure small scholarships for which very few students are eligible, anyone doing community service anywhere in the U.S. can try for most "making a difference" scholarships. Many of these scholarships are exceptionally large - in the $5,000 to $10,000 range. And winners of these awards substantially increase their chances of being admitted to the college of their choice.
