College Scholarships and Financial Aid

Scholarships are available directly from colleges, and other philanthropic sources. Most offer annual applications, so it is important to be familiar with this information. It is beneficial to begin thinking about paying for college early in high school. Some scholarships are available to underclassmen, while others are available only to high school seniors and those currently in college.
