CLASS OF 2019  Available Scholarships

Scholarships are added as the Counseling Department is notified by the sponsoring agency. The information below is intended to be a beginning reference point only. Internet searches may yield results for other specific scholarships and ones available at the national and state level.

Paper applications are available at our office although they often must be returned through a mailing address. If a scholarship requires a current transcript, we will be happy to provide one upon request.

Also Good to Know: Foundation Scholarships are often the easiest to qualify for, and are available at all colleges. Once accepted at a college, go online or call the college’s financial aid department to apply. Usually one quickly submitted application will allow you to be considered for hundreds of “in house” scholarships. Scholarship information is sent to the student through the Senior Remind group and can be found on the Counseling Center’s Facebook page.

Shaded boxes denotes expired scholarships.
