The Counseling office has compiled a list of scholarships. Please check back often for updates. Remember to check the colleges and universities in which you are interested; they have many scholarship opportunities. Please notify the counseling office of any scholarships that you are awarded.
Remember, applying for aid requires effort on your part. You won’t get money unless you ask for it, and asking for it means completing paperwork. The same applies to scholarships-putting together a respectable scholarship application package takes time. You should spend some time researching scholarship opportunities. There are also many websites devoted to helping students find scholarships. You may also contact the Texas Financial Aid Information Center (TFAIC) hotline at 1-888-311-8881.
Be wary of possible scholarship scams. The truth is, there are billions of scholarship dollars that go unclaimed each year. Help is available. Some families choose to pay several hundred or thousand dollars to an organization that streamlines the process of applying to college and/or searching for scholarships for them, but it is not necessary. If you have any questions or concerns about an offer, letter, website, etc., please contact your counselor!
