    2024 National Scholarship Resources 
    Researching scholarships is similar to any other research project you might do for a class.  To help manage the volume of information, keep a binder where you can organize your scholarships.  Scholarships are organized in categories (merit based, major, athletic, ethnicity/heritage, gender, religious affiliation, community involvement, disability, financial need, etc.) In addition to state and federal monies for college tuition, be sure to contact the financial aid office on the campus that you plan to enroll.  Each campus is unique and has its own scholarship program. Be sure to check for updated scholarships listed below and advertised in the Career Center.

        • Tips on searching for Scholarships

          • Check this page on a regular basis for updates. 

          • Check the scholarship opportunities available at the college you will be attending. Each college has its own specific scholarships available.

          • Ask your parents or guardians to ask their employer(s), banks, clubs, etc., if they offer a scholarship for dependents. (If you're employed, ask your employer.)

          • Start looking for scholarships as early as 9th Grade! There are opportunities available for all grade levels of high school.

          • Apply for multiple scholarships!

          • Dedicate time every week to review the scholarship lists for new scholarships and to complete the application and essay(s) required.

          • Many scholarships have similar essay prompts. You can re-use essays by making a few changes.

          • You should never have to pay to apply for a scholarship.
