Scholarship Opportunities



Scholarships are financial aid to assist with paying college expenses.  Scholarships differ from college loans in that scholarships do not have to be repaid.

 There are two types of scholarships:

  1. Dependent Scholarships - Dependent scholarships are awarded to students who enroll at a specific college or university.  The scholarship is "dependent" on the student enrolling and attending their college or university.  Click here for links to the scholarship pages of many colleges and universities.
  2. Independent Scholarships - Independent scholarship not dependent on the student attending a specific college or university.  The student can "independently" apply the funds to the college or university he/she decides to attend.

NOTE:  While most scholarships are limited to seniors only, some are available for underclassmen.  Students should begin searching for scholarships when they enter high school.
