Scholarship News You Can Use 2018-2019

Welcome college-bound students and parents to Scholarship News You Can Use. Check back often as information is continuously updated. Your counselor and college adviser are also a great source of information, so please make an appointment with them to talk through some of these options. The college adviser also sends out a monthly Scholarship Newsletter to student class group emails, so students make sure you check your emails.

Here are some helpful tips to guide you on your search

  1. Do not let small award amounts discourage you. Apply to as many scholarships as you think you are qualified for. Your counselor and the college adviser are great resources in determining different options you should pursue.
  2. Beware of any scholarship that asks for a social security number, guarantees an award, or charges an application fee. These are usually hoaxes of one sort or another. If you are unsure, ask your counselor or college adviser.
  3. Keep track of your scholarships! Staying organized will help you plan out how many you need to apply to, and when you should be done applying.
  4. Don't get stressed out. Plan to complete one scholarship a day to lessen the load. By the end of the school, you could have applied for over a hundred scholarships! (That's a lot of money).
