April 2018 Scholarship Opportunities

April 18 Scholarships

A few reminders:

**This is the LAST Scholarship List for the year.  Make sure you take advantage of these opportunities.

** After you graduate, you won’t be eligible for many of the scholarships we’ve listed this year.  Most colleges have a scholarship section on their website for current students.  Check there early in your freshman year so that you don’t miss out!

NOW IS THE TIME

  • Clackamas Community College Reps will be in the Career Center on May 3rd to talk with interested Seniors. It’s NOT TOO LATE to go to CCC next year.
  • If you are going to a 2-year or career school, you should do your application soon if you haven’t already. You should have already filed your FAFSA & applied for Oregon Promise.
  • If you are going to a 4-year college, you should have applied, submitted SAT or ACT scores, and filed your FAFSA by now.

 

  • Letters with financial aid offers should be coming from colleges in the next month. You will have to sign an acceptance form.
