SCHOLARSHIPS = FREE MONEY

Scholarships don’t need to be repaid and come mostly from organizations and colleges. Scholarship searches are a lot of work and very time consuming, yet can be well worth the effort and stress. By taking an early look and discovering all the possibilities, it can offset lots of extra work later on and give you and your family a head start on reducing the cost of college.

Look particularly into scholarships that are automatically renewable or ones for which you can reapply each year. There are two types of scholarships: need and non-need based. Need-based scholarships are primarily about financial need. Non-need can be anything else: academic performance, hard work, character, community service, sports, field of study, special talents, etc.

Also, you can check on the website of the college you are applying to, under their financial aid and/or scholarship link.  There are lots of opportunities available through each college for scholarships.  Most colleges require you to fill out the FAFSA in order to receive their scholarships.

This list will be continually updated.

If you have any questions, please contact the Counseling Office.

SOME OF THE LOCAL SCHOLARSHIP BELOW REQUIRE THE "COMMON APPLICATION".  You will only need to fill this out once.  Then print enough copies for each of your scholarships requiring this Common Application.
