Scholarships and Financial Aid Information

  • Scholarships are open to all high school students. However, most scholarships are available to seniors in high school.  While scholarship applications are available all year round, the "scholarship season", when there are more scholarship applications available and/or due, is November through April. While private scholarships are worth pursuing, more scholarships are given through colleges and universities. 

    Financial Aid is a term meant to include scholarships, grants, work study and loans. It is money to help pay for education beyond high school. For more information on Financial Aid & Scholarships, use the rest of this webpage and the resources provided.
