Scholarships

Scholarships

Scholarships are available to help you pay for educational expenses and, unlike student loans, do not need to be repaid. Why not apply for as many as you can?

Check out our list of scholarships, browse scholarship search sites, and visit with your high school counselor to learn about the many scholarships for which you should apply.

All scholarships you are awarded need to be reported to the Financial Aid office so the scholarships can be included in your financial aid award.
