ScholarshipsPosted by Tabitha Bryant on 8/12/2019
The primary role of the School Counseling Department related to scholarships is to promote awareness of opportunities available to you. The criteria for the majority of scholarships have been determined by outside organizations and colleges. We will be happy to assist you in processing scholarship applications as needed.
Pay attention to deadlines. Usually, the deadline listed for a scholarship is the final date the organization must have received ALL PARTS of the application packet. Most of the applications can be accessed through the websites, but if there is only a paper application, those will be available in the School Counseling Office.
Information on available scholarships can be found HERE and/or in the filing cabinet drawer labeled Scholarships 2018-2019 in the School Counseling Office. Don't hesitate to contact the School Counseling office with any questions. Good luck!

Events & Information:
Beginning with the class of 2020, the College Board Opportunity Scholarships will be awarded, ranging in amounts from $500-$40,000! This isn't your typical scholarship program. It doesn't require an essay or an application or have a minimum GPA requirement. Students have a chance to earn scholarships when you build your college list, practice for the SAT, improve your SAT score, strengthen your college list, fill out the FAFSA, and apply to college. Students can begin today by signing up on their site. The first step is to make a starter list of six colleges you want to attend. Just by making that list, you earn a chance for a $500 scholarship.
