Virtually every college and university offers some type of scholarship opportunity to its students. While some colleges will automatically consider all applicants for major merit awards, many schools offer additional award opportunities for students who have already been admitted. In this case, additional application criteria must usually be met (forms, essays, letters of recommendation, etc.) It is important that students research the scholarship opportunities available from their schools as early and often as possible.
In addition to scholarships awarded at the institutional level, there are countless other opportunities offered by nonprofit organizations, charities, corporations, and private funds. Please exercise caution when conducting online searches for scholarship money, especially when sharing your personal information through forms. If you are unsure of the validity of a website, please see Dr. Haring for assistance.
For your information, scholarship opportunities will be emailed directly to students as they are received by the Office of Guidance. Students are advised to check their email frequently for these notifications.
