Where can I find scholarship information?
The internet is your best source for scholarship information. Visit the website of each college you’re applying to in order to determine what scholarships/financial aid they offer. Check to see if they require a separate scholarship application or if they use their admissions application to select scholarship recipients. Other great scholarship search websites include: www.fastweb.com, www.cfnc.org, www.wsfoundation.org, www.UNCF.org, www.hispanicfund.org, and www.collegeboard.org. Also check with your parents’ place of employment, church, or other community groups to see what scholarships they may offer. Scholarship newsletters will be available in the Guidance office, on the bulletin board outside of Guidance, and will periodically be sent to seniors and parents through email.
