Scholarships

 SCHOLARSHIP INFORMATION FOR

TEMPLE HIGH SCHOOL

SCHOLARSHIPS BECOME AVAILABLE WHEN WE GET BACK TO WORK AND IN MANY INSTANCES EVEN EARLIER THAN THAT. THEY STEADILY COME IN THE COUNSELING OFFICE THROUGHOUT THE YEAR AS WELL.  AS SCHOLARSHIP INFORMATION COMES INTO THE COUNSELING OFFICE THEY ARE INSTANTLY PUT ON THE PLACES LISTED BELOW ALONG WITH DEADLINE DATES AND LINKS TO GET TO THE APPLICATION. 

THERE ARE NUMEROUS SCHOLARSHIPS AVAILABLE THAT DON’T COME INTO THE COUNSELING OFFICE AND SOME IDEAS OF HOW TO GET TO THESE SCHOLARSHIPS ARE LISTED BELOW AS WELL.   YOU CAN ALSO CALL THE FINANCIAL AID OFFICE OF THE COLLEGE YOUR SON OR DAUGHTER PLANS TO ATTEND AND ASK IF THERE IS ANY SCHOLARSHIP MONEY THEY CAN ISSUE.   IT IS IMPORTANT TO FILL OUT THE FAFSA (FREE APPLICATION FOR STUDENT AID) EVEN IF YOU FEEL LIKE YOU WILL NOT QUALIFY AS MANY COLLEGES LOOK AT THIS TO ISSUE THEIR SPECIFIC SCHOLARSHIPS.

PLACES TO FIND INFORMATION

WHEN TO APPLY FOR SCHOLARSHIPS

IT IS NEVER TOO EARLY TO START APPLYING FOR SCHOLARSHIPS; HOWEVER SOME OF THE SCHOLARSHIPS HAVE REQUIREMENTS AND DEADLINES SO YOU WOULD NEED TO MAKE SURE YOU MEET THE REQUIREMENTS AND DEADLINES.   

STUDENTS SHOULD ALSO ASK THE COLLEGE ADMISSIONS OFFICE THAT THEY’RE GOING TO ATTEND ABOUT WORK STUDIES PROGRAMS AS THIS IS ANOTHER FORM OF A SCHOLARSHIP THAT GOES TOWARDS TUITION.  THE WORK STUDIES JOBS USUALLY ARE ALL TAKEN BY NOVEMBER OF THE PREVIOUS YEAR SO IT WOULD BE A GOOD IDEA TO ASK THE ADMISSIONS OFFICE OF THE COLLEGE THEY PLAN TO ATTEND ANYTIME BETWEEN AUGUST-OCTOBER OF THEIR SENIOR YEAR.

SENIORS CAN ALSO GOOGLE SCHOLARSHIPS FOR GRADUATING SENIORS OF WHATEVER YEAR THEY ARE GRADUATING.  (EX: SCHOLARSHIPS FOR SENIORS GRADUATING IN 2019.)

ALSO A GOOD IDEA IS TO GOOGLE ANY SCHOLARSHIPS AVAILABLE PERTAINING TO THE FIELD THEY ARE ENTERING. (EX: NURSING SCHOLARSHIPS, WELDING SCHOLARSHIPS, ENGINEERING SCHOLARSHIPS ETC…..)

****HELPFUL HINTS****

MOST SCHOLARSHIPS WILL REQUIRE STUDENTS TO WRITE ESSAYS, SO JUST WRITE ONE ESSAY AND SAVE IT. THEN, YOU CAN CHANGE EACH ESSAY TO FIT THE PARTICULAR SCHOLARSHIP YOU ARE APPLYING FOR.

IT IS GOOD TO HAVE AN UPDATED RESUME IN CASE YOU NEED TO ATTACH IT TO ANY SCHOLARSHIP.  USE THIS TO GIVE TO ANY PERSON YOU REQUEST TO WRITE YOU A LETTER OF RECOMMENDATION.  WHEN YOU ARE ASKING SOMEONE TO WRITE A LETTER OF RECOMMENDATION MAKE SURE YOU INCLUDE WHAT YOU NEED THEM TO WRITE IT FOR.

 


DON’T DELAY, as deadlines for scholarships are sometimes earlier than the admission application deadlines.

Remember that teachers and counselors will need two weeks' notice when requesting transcripts and recommendations for scholarship and college applications.

 

Make sure to use the free online scholarship searches to determine specifics for you!!! A few examples to look at are:
