We will be moving all scholarship information to a dynamic document (as in, changing all the time).
It is recommended students keep an eye out for scholarships, but we encourage our seniors to finish college applications first, then move forward with scholarship searches. Spend a few minutes each evening, or an hour each weekend, or more. Use different databases and create notification profiles. Students who dedicate a portion of their week to scholarship searches will have success! It just takes effort.
This scholarship wants to help you find affordable housing in college!
