Scholarship Opportunities

 

Scholarships

Updated  DECEMBER 13, 2018

Seniors and Senior Parents: this is the most recent updated list I have of scholarships that are sent to my office. The scholarships that say " OPEN " should be ready to go.  Read the criteria, click on the name of the scholarship to access that application.  Those that say "See Mr Thiele", stop in and pick up a hard copy from Mr. Thiele or Mrs. Ruppert. 

Most completed scholarships are turned back into guidance office, unless an address is given; on due date I send the file containing all applications to the specific committee that heads up that scholarship.

Continue to check with the scholarships/financial aid department of the school you are looking at attending to determine what (if any) scholarships and grants are available through them.

The FAFSA (Free Application For Federal Student Aid) can be filed after October 1st using your 2017 taxes. Go to:   http://www.fafsa.gov - you must first have a FSA ID- for that go to: http://www.fsaid.ed.gov
