This page is to provide you with resources to help you with the college application process. Feel free to send Early College drafts of your application essays or stop by office hours for help at any stage of the process.
Before you start clicking through scholarships, consider:
Do you have an intended major? Many scholarships target specific majors
Does your church/community center offer any scholarships? Many times you will find out that they do.
Did you research scholarship opportunities at each of the colleges you applied for? Make sure you look into them.
Does your elementary school have a scholarship program? Student organizations you’re still a part of?
The guidance office usually has a list of scholarships–they are most likely your best resource for scholarships.
