Your high school College Career Center distributes information on available scholarships on a regular basis. Scholarships are usually based on one or more of the following criteria: high grade point average, enrollment in a specific university, plans to major in a specific field, financial need, high SAT or ACT scores, ethnic background, residence, letters of recommendation, community service, demonstrated leadership potential, special talents - i.e. athletics, music, etc. or essay writing ability.
Your College & Career Center website can be your most valuable source for scholarship opportunities. It is wise to discuss periodically the latest scholarship opportunities with your CCMR counselor. It is important for you to be diligent in your efforts to exhaust all possible sources of scholarship moneys for which you feel you qualify. Also check the scholarship office of the school that you plan to attend for additional scholarship opportunities. There may be additional scholarships that are renewable each year as you work toward your degree.
