SCHOLARSHIPS INFORMATIONPlease be advised: Some of our families have received letters from companies inviting them to financial aid/scholarship presentations that promise to help them find money to help defray the cost of college. Please know that all sources of financial aid/scholarship are equally available to all. These companies have no greater ability to access resources than school counselors or students and parents themselves. If you have to pay money to get money, it's most likely a scam. Millions of dollars are spent by anxious parents annually with no financial benefit and at additional expense. The Federal Trade Commission is continually working to prevent these unscrupulous companies from taking advantage of well-meaning families.
Reminder: The deadlines listed below are the dates in which the scholarship applications must be RECEIVED. Scholarships listed in "Red" are past the deadline or do not have an updated deadline. Please check back at a later time for updated information.
If you require extra assistance, allow for the following:
- If you need references, allow the individual you have asked AT LEAST two weeks notice.
- If you need your official transcript printed or sent, you MUST see Mrs. Billings in the Student Center.
- If you are under the age of 18, be sure to have a Transcript Release Request Form signed by your parents.
- If you need either an Official Transcript or a Counselor's Report filled out, allow for AT LEAST four days prior to the deadline. If it needs to be mailed, (which is usually the case) allow for AT LEAST seven days.
