    WAYS TO GET INVOLVED


    MESSAGE FROM THE SCHOLARSHIP OFFICE:

    Many scholarships, both academic and vocational, are available to students who qualify. While donors of these grants are interested in students who have achieved scholastic excellence, they also look closely at those who exhibit good citizenship, qualities of leadership, and development of individual talents. Students interested in scholarships should contact any of the Counselors or the Scholarship Coordinator in the Counseling Center. They will be helpful in providing additional information as well as assisting students in preparing and applying for such grants. Students may also write to the Financial Aid and Scholarship Office of any particular college. Senior students should be aware of early application deadlines. There are many scholarships for non-seniors. Please check with your Counselor.
