College Preparation Timeline

Scholarship Information

Every year thousands of dollars designated to assist students in pursuing a college education go unused. The scholarship application process should be considered like a part-time job; it requires a significant amount of time and effort that results in good benefits … money! It is very important to pay attention to deadlines and ensure that you complete the FAFSA so that you may be eligible for the most amount of scholarship and grant money. The earlier you start thinking about and preparing for college, the better.  Remember that ultimately the place to receive the most amount of financial assistance is through the institution you will attend. If you have any questions along the way, please visit with your counselor or the career center.
