College Financial Aid

 

Senior Scholarship Information

Every year we receive questions from parents about agencies and companies selling their services to help students find scholarships. As counselors, we do not endorse products and services but encourage parents and students to do some careful research prior to any investment. We are also warned to be alert for scholarship scams where it is necessary to pay a fee to be eligible for a scholarship. Scholarship Scam information is available here. There are many excellent free resources available, a few of which are listed below.
