WHERE TO LOOK FOR SCHOLARSHIPS....
Look beyond colleges and universities for scholarships. Educational funding in the private sector has increased dramatically in recent years. Many organizations offer scholarships, including:
State & local governments
Church & religious organizations
Monthly scholarship lists are located in both Naviance Student and in the College & Career Center. Lists are continually updated.
Students can print out applications that are available online by going to the individual scholarship websites posted on the monthly lists, or request printed copies of scholarship applications in the College & Career Center.
Please note that new scholarship opportunities arrive every week.
Check on Naviance Student and in the College & Career Center on a regular basis to keep current on available scholarships.
