While receiving some scholarships may adjust your financial aid award from your chosen institution, many of the scholarships listed on this page, especially the locally awarded scholarships, are issued directly to the student. This makes the funds available for expenses beyond tuition. The Guidance office staff strongly suggests you apply for any scholarship for which you qualify.

The Guidance Office does their best to verify that all scholarships are legitimate but the new rush of online only scholarships makes this difficult. Please use caution when providing personal information. If in doubt ask the Guidance Office and we will help investigate as best we can.
