scholarship database new
Scholarship Database - New

We are starting a scholarship database to notify students of scholarships they may qualify for..

  • The form will list your college choices, major, sports, activities, etc.
  • If the information on your form matches criteria of a scholarship, you will be notified.
  • If you are not contacted, but think you qualify, you should still apply.
  • This is not a substitute for your scholarship search.
  • Pick up a yellow database form in Counseling.
  • Scholarships usually require an official sealed transcript with SAT or ACT scores if available.
  • Transcript request forms are in the Counseling Office. Fill one out and leave in the “Transcript Request Box”. You can pick up your transcripts the end of the next day.
  • Please allow at least 24 hours to process.
letters of recommendation
Letters of recommendation
  • Most scholarships require at least one letter of recommendation.
  • Use the green recommendation form in Counseling. Or go online and find the template under Counseling, then Handouts. This is a great way to be able to type it in and email it to your teacher or counselor.
  • You should give the writer up to two weeks or moreto finish your letter of recommendation.
  • Provide as much information as possible to give the writer plenty to work with.
  • Hand deliver the form to the person writing the letter for you.
scholarship scams
Scholarship scams
  • Watch out for…
  • Having to pay an application fee
  • Receiving a notice that you are a finalist or have already won a scholarship you didn’t apply for
  • Having to submit a checking account number
  • Official sounding names such as “national” or “federal” – it doesn’t mean they are legitimate!
  • Charging a fee for a list of scholarship leads – this is usually free
  • Guaranteeing that you will win
  • Sound Scholarship Companies Should Always Provide
  • The number of awards, amount or range of each, and the duration
  • The criteria for selection
  • Who evaluates the applications and what their qualifications are
  • How awards can be used
  • Deadline for submission and when applicants will be notified
  • Any fees should be nominal or waived if financial hardship can be demonstrated
  • Relevant background information of the company
  • A list of winner from previous five years or so
  • If you suspect a scam, save your suspicious forms and contact the Federal Trade Commission, National Fraud Center, or the Better Business Bureau.
