Scholarship Information

Planning for your future is very important.  Finding a way to fund your education now will save you a lot of money and worry in the future.  Here are some tips to remember when filling out Scholarship Applications.
  1. Be sure to read and follow any instructions given on an application.
  2. Answer all questions thoroughly. Your answer is the only way a scholarship committee has of knowing who you are and what you have accomplished.
  3. Prepare an activities list or resume and appropriately attach a copy to your application.
  4. Arrange to have letters of recommendation written in advance of the scholarship deadlines.
  5. Even if the application does not require recommendations or an activities list. It is advisable to include them. Additional information can increase your chances of receiving a scholarship.
  6. BE AWARE OF SCHOLARSHIP DEADLINES!!! Many times the deadlines change from year to year.  The deadlines on this page are an approximation based on the deadlines from previous years so always double check the deadlines.
