Collegiate Scholarships

These scholarships (need based and merit based) are offered by individual colleges and universities to students who plan to attend their institutions and who meet the eligibility requirements.  Generally, your admissions application serves as your application for these scholarships.  Information describing many of the scholarship programs is available in the Collegiate Scholarship file cabinet.

All scholarship applications are handled as if they were college applications.  This means they need to be turned in to your counselor 10 working days prior to their deadline with a cover sheet detailing exactly what must accompany them before they leave our offices (ie: transcript, recommendations, number of copies of each, etc).

Non-Collegiate Scholarships

The sources for these scholarships may include: foundations, community service groups, companies, ethnic organizations, and churches.  The eligibility criteria may be based on financial need, academic excellence, service to others and personal characteristics.

All current scholarships are listed on the Career Center page of the Counseling Services site.  All applications are available online or in the Career Center.  Students can also check on Naviance for a complete listing.
