Scholarships

Scholarships Available in the Main Office
First, read through the list of scholarships link here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1MfOLE8VYHGtw-iQss0xvIhmZ7wUVm22rclRqoNTM8nE/edit#gid  If you find a scholarship that interests you and there is no website link, go to the small file cabinet in Kay Wehner’s office located in the counseling office and look for the scholarship listed. Take it with you. Remember, there are many scholarships available from the college or university you plan to attend. Be sure to check individual college websites EARLY for specific scholarships.  
 
Please remember that you must apply and be accepted to the college or university to accept and use the scholarship money towards your college education.
 
MOST SCHOLARSHIPS HAVE APPLICATION DEADLINES. BE AWARE OF THESE!
 
Students - please go online and make sure you meet the eligibility criteria of the scholarship. Is your GPA high enough? Is your information correct before spending your time on applying for a scholarship that you will not qualify for later? Know the terms used in researching scholarships and make sure you understand what you are applying for. I have included a GLOSSARY OF SCHOLARSHIP TERMS I thought would be helpful. Please Google “How do I know if a scholarship is legit?” and learn about SCAMS.  
 
Note: Many scholarships are available from the college or university you plan to attend. Be sure to check individual college websites for specific scholarships.

FACT OF THE MONTH
 
The state of Indiana has increased its state grants rather noticeably, good news for Indiana residents attending accredited Indiana colleges and universities. Here is a sample of the changes:
 
With a zero Expected Family Contribution (EFC), here are the new maximum state grants:
 
Private Colleges: Last year’s $7,400 grant has been increased to $9,000
Public Universities: Last year’s $3,700 grant has increased to $4,500
Ivy Tech/Proprietary Colleges: Last year’s  $3,100 grant has increased to $3,400
 
Please Note: If you are eligible for a state grant and have an Academic or Technical Honors Diploma, you receive an additional “Incentive Grant” of $800. So looking at the amounts above, $9,000 becomes $9,800; $4,500 becomes $5,300; and $3,400 becomes $4,200.  AN HONORS DIPLOMA CAN PAY YOU!!
