A number of scholarships are awarded to deserving seniors each year. Information on scholarships and financial aid is announced and sent to all seniors. Interested students should be alert to announcements, the scholarship handbook, posted flyers, and financial aid workshops. Information may also be found on the school’s website.
Students who are applying for scholarships are to submit completed applications, including all letters of recommendation, to the counselor one week before the due date. This time gives the counselor an ample opportunity to review applications for errors and attach requested information. The counselor will mail applications for the student unless otherwise requested.
Like scholarships, grants do not have to be repaid, but often are based on financial need or some other criteria. Your eligibility will be determined by your federal student aid application (FAFSA)
Many students help pay for their education with a part-time job while they are in school. Your eligibility for the Federal Work Study program is determined by your federal student aid application (FAFSA)
Unlike scholarships and grants, loans do have to be repaid. You want to try to graduate from college with as little debt as possible, so it is ideal to exhaust your scholarship, grant and employment opportunities before taking a student loan. Again, your loan eligibility is determined by your federal student aid application (FAFSA)
