Scholarship Information

SCHOLARSHIP GUIDE

 

  • Contact the colleges for scholarship information and applications if they are not included in the student

application for admission packet.  

 

  • Check for e-mails from the Counseling Office. As the scholarship applications come in, we send information about  them by e-mail.

 

  • Watch the newspapers for scholarship announcements.

 

  • Watch for church-sponsored scholarships and for those sponsored by other groups in the community.

 

  •  Have your parents ask their employers if any company-sponsored scholarships are available for employees’ children.

 

 Particular colleges offer scholarships to their students. We will know some of these, but each student should check with his/her chosen college for information. Be sure you have applied for admission to a college before you apply for a scholarship from that college.
