Students are encouraged to complete an on-going Internet search for the hundreds of college scholarships available throughout the year. Students must understand that applying for a scholarship does not necessarily mean the student will receive the scholarship. All scholarships are competitive and are, in most cases, tied to a high grade point average and/or unmet need. All scholarship deadlines are strictly maintained. Most scholarships require a written essay, photo, or other documentation by the applicant.
