Scholarship Process

STEP 1
Obtain copies of the Non-Merit and School Specific Scholarship Directories, which can be obtained from the wall across from the CCRC (College and Career Resource Center) in the Counseling Office. From the directories, determine which scholarship you will pursue when the applications become available.  Please note that this is only a partial list of scholarships that are available to students each eyar.

STEP 2
Visit the Scholarship Wall across from the CCRC regularly for new and current applications. Across from the wall is the Scholarship File Cabinet. It includes out-of-state, school specific applications; military information, and some enrollment applications for out-of-state colleges. Remember that not all scholarships listed in the directory will be included in the drawer or on the wall. For some scholarships, you will need to contact the college, university, or organization listed. Contacts for most scholarships are listed in the Scholarship Directory.

STEP 3
Contact the college or university of your choice to get answers to specific questions about your eligibility for scholarships and your total financial aid package. Remember that the college financial aid and scholarship office is your best resource for money that comes directly from the school.

STEP 4
We do not recommend that you pay for scholarship searches that are offered by any organizations. You can do specific and free scholarship searches on any of the following websites:

Final and Most Important Step
Inform Mrs. Stephan in the Counseling Center of the scholarships you are awarded from ONLY the school you are planning to attend and any organization scholarships you have received. Please complete a scholarship confirmation form (found here and in the counseling center) and bring a copy of the confirmation letter that you receive regarding your award. Please be sure to include information regarding the organization awarding the scholarship, the amount, and if it is renewable. You will then be invited to attend and be recognized at the Scholarship Awards Evening on May 23, 2013 at 6:30pm in the Auditorium.  Please note that awards turned in after May 3 will NOT be announced on scholarship night.
