FAFSA Myths and Facts

Senior students remember "hot scholarship" season runs from about mid-October through March 1st.

Be sure to make a weekly habit of going to the Career Center. Do not overlook scholarships that will mean a lot to you next fall when you begin college. For example, a $500 scholarship taking you 5 hours to complete pays you a $100 per hour in return (and most applications will not take you that long to complete). Deadlines will come and go so, do not miss out, begin your scholarship search this week! If you have questions, you may always talk with your counselor in the counseling center or with Ms. Clizer in the career center.
