How do I find out about scholarships?
Throughout the 2014-15 school year, businesses, organizations, and colleges from across the state will send information to the SVHS counseling office. This information will be collected in a file folder and distributed to senior students in three ways. An updated list of scholarships will be posted to the webpage once a month. Students and senior parents will be emailed a newsletter/list of available scholarships at least once a month, more often if warranted. In addition, students are welcome to stop-by anytime to check-out new scholarships that have become available. Students who are proactive are often the first to know about and apply for scholarships; keep in mind that this is your responsibility!
In addition, universities, colleges, and community colleges offer scholarships to prospective students. It is imperative that students apply for these scholarships after they have completed their application for admission to their potential school. Also, it is important that all senior students check-out the scholarship deadlines at their potential college. MANY UNIVERSITIES HAVE A PRIORITY DEADLINE AS EARLY AS NOVEMBER 1ST! Don't wait to apply! Students can always decline scholarships at a later date if they choose a different school.
