They may become unclaimed scholarships because students simply don’t know about them or where to apply for them. Going to their website does no good in locating an Apple college scholarship other then the Apple Scholars Program. They are almost elusive because they seem to be intertwined with other scholarship programs and sometimes they will discontinue a particular Apple scholarship program and it is no longer available. They must have at least 70 different ones that you can apply for. There are some that are available to anyone in the United States but then there are some that are only available in the states where Apple corporations are. In order to find the ones that are best for you and find the deadlines and requirements you must search for Apple scholarships to see what new Apple scholarship program is available at that time and it will be posted on the internet.
The above were all existing Apple scholarship programs as of the date of the writing of this article, but some may no longer be available. It is a bit unusual that such a large corporation handles their educational support for college students this way but then again Apple has always been one to distance themselves from the crowd and take their own unique road in doing things.
