SCHOLARSHIPS

Welcome to the UPDATED

2017-2018 Scholarship Postings Page

Here are a few things to consider in order to use this page as effectively as possible:

  1. Check this page weekly. Some scholarships come and go very quickly.
  2. You can access the applications using the links I have provided. You will only come to me for the application if it says “See Mrs. Peterson, ” or if you need help completing the application.
  3. Unless I tell you that I will mail the applications as a group (only a few are like this and they usually go to someone at district), you mail paper applications.
  4. On this page I only post scholarships that have come to my attention or are given by local organizations. IT SHOULD NOT BE YOUR ONLY SOURCE FOR SCHOLARSHIPS! I suggest you choose a couple of scholarship search engines as well.  Some popular sites are fastweb.com, scholarships.com, collegeboard.com, niche.com.  There are many others.
  5. Always be thorough, accurate and complete when filling out applications. Essays matter! Devote time and attention to earn these scholarships.
  6. Finally, come and see me with any questions you might have. Good Luck!
