Scholarship Resources

Scholarship are gifts.  They don't need to be repaid.  Students are encouraged to apply for national, state, regional and community scholarships.  There are thousands of them, offered by colleges, employers, individuals, private companies, nonprofits, ethnic groups, religious groups, and professional and social organizations.  Scholarships are awarded based on merit, ethnic background, community service, leadership, school activities and personal interests.  Colleges often offer scholarship money.  Check out the financial aid office from the colleges you are applying to.  Make sure you talk to college representatives, admission counselors and specific departments in the college (e.g. music, biology departments).  Sometimes the application for scholarships may be different from the admission applications.

    ·       Web-based, so it can be used at school, at the library or at home

    ·       Serves all  ages of students, from middle school through college and into graduate school

     How it works:

Note: Some scholarship organizations ask schools to nominate one student for their scholarship.  LHS is a large public high school - students interested in being considered for a scholarship opportunity that require a nomination need to bring a current high school resume highlighting their leadership, community service and high school coursework to the High School and Beyond Center. Based on the scholarship criteria LHS will select the best qualified student to nominate (selected students need to follow through on all application details).
