If you are making plans to attend college, you should be thinking about how you will pay for your education. Rather then rely on your parent/guardian or rely on student loans, take an active role in funding your education.
Start by looking over the scholarship bulletin. Read the scholarship requirements. If you qualify, follow the instructions. Regardless of the amount of the scholarship, apply for EVERY scholarship that you qualify for! College is expensive and unless your parent/guardian is independently wealthy, you will need every dollar that you can get your hands on.
If the scholarship requires an essay, write the essay and ask your English teacher or Counselor to look over your paper. Your application is a reflection of you and you want to leave a good impression. To view or print the list, click on the link below.
