Scholarships

Filed under: — Douglas @ 5:48 am

All scholarships will be announced on a weekly basis to be read over the student announcements, listed in the student bulletin, and posted on the scholarship website. As this page is updated weekly, the new scholarships will be posted in a "different color" to differentiate them from the already received scholarships. 

Scholarships that have a college listed mean you have to have applied to that college and plan on attending there if you are going to apply for that particular scholarship. If an organization is mentioned and a career appears in parentheses, you need to major in that particular field in order to apply for the scholarship. Pay attention to anything that is within parentheses because that narrows it down as far as your eligibility is concerned. If a scholarship is stated and nothing appears in parentheses, these are considered to be "generic" scholarships open to everyone and it doesn't matter what college you will be attending or what area you will be pursuing. If you have any questions, whatsoever, on any of these scholarships posted, please contact Ms. Stone at:  309-743-8822.
