This site seems to have a nice list of GIS scholarships, and Google is always helpful in such matters.

Check with local chapters of GIS-oriented organizations, such as GITA and URISA. They often offer scholarships.

Quite true, I earned a small scholarship from my state's chapter of URISA –  jvangeld Aug 13 '10 at 0:08

If you don't mind becoming part of the Military Industrial Complex, you could apply for a SMART scholarship. The NGA is a participant.

Check within your discipline. Unless you're doing research in theoretical GIS. Really you should be looking at getting a scholarship in your domain (Transportation, Bio, Image analysis, etc.). All these fields have a heavy link to GIS so that broadens the scope of the search
