Scholarship Information

 As scholarship information arrives, I will post to this website and place copies of applications outside the counseling office.  Most scholarships will not arrive until after Christmas, but there are many ways to search for scholarships.  Certain college websites provide scholarship information.  Check with the college you are planning to attend to get more information.  

As you apply to colleges, also apply for their scholarships!
