Scholarships and Grants

Listed below, you'll find links to various institutional documents and government websites that describe the kinds of aid students are automatically evaluated for at the time of their award. However, scholarships and grants are offered by many organizations, including national honor societies, local businesses, churches, and more. Therefore, we encourage students to be proactive regarding outside scholarships.
 
For incoming freshman, high school counselors are often valuable resources in the search for additional funds and many maintain lists of local scholarships you may be eligible to receive.
