    Scholarships

     

    We encourage you to explore all scholarships and options for financial support. AGAIN, keep up to date with what is posted on the counseling website and what is posted on the scholarship board in the counseling office. We do not recommend that you pay for assistance with scholarship searches.

    Things to keep in Mind!

    1. Some institutions require that you first submit you FAFSA (Federal Financial Aid form) to be considered for scholarships.
    2. Turn in applications on time! If they are being mailed make sure you mail them about a week ahead of time. If you are not sure if they are due back to Mrs. Malmquist or being mailed just ask.
    3. Give your recommenders at least 2 weeks to write your letters and give them an idea of what the scholarship is about.
    4. Make sure you look at the newsletter for more detailed information on each scholarship.
    5. Check out the Scholarship Board in the Counseling Office...it is updated regularly!!

    Happy Scholarship Season!
