Scholarship Opportunities & Financial Assistance

  • Parents and students:

    It is very important for you to be aware of scholarship requirements and deadlines. Many private scholarships from community agencies and/or college scholarships have specific criteria. Parents and students are responsible to make sure they meet the criteria.

    The Counseling Office will post any scholarships they are aware of on the website. Please check the website regularly for updates. Mrs. Nebush and Mrs. Hajdasz will help and support you any way they can.

    Please make sure that if a scholarship requires an essay or a recommendation that you provide yourself enough time to complete the essay. Remember to ask your recommendation writer in advance to write you a recommendation and provide them with ample time to write one for you.

    Please see or contact guidance if you have any questions.
