College Scholarship Opportunities

  • Who do I need to speak with about scholarships and deadlines?

    Posted by:

    Located in the guidance office, you can speak with Mrs. Meskunas, Mrs. Lingerfelt, or Mrs. Ferrell.  There is a Senior Recommendation Packet located under the Planning for College section of our website.  This is a good resource to take when you go speak with one of these ladies.

  • Which counselor do I need to list as a contact for my college scholarships?

    Posted by:

    Lana Meskunas is our college and career counselor.  When filling out college admissions or scholarship information, she is the counselor you list for this process.  For dual enrollment courses while in high school, contact your other designated counselor; however, for post high school graduation purposes, Mrs. Meskunas is the counselor you should visit.  She is available in the summer for appointments.

  • When do I need to begin asking questions pertaining to college scholarships?

    Posted by:

             You are free to ask about scholarships at any point during your high school years.  However, most students begin asking specific questions around the end of their junior year.  Most college scholarship deadlines occur during a student's senior year.  Typically, university endowed scholarships and academic scholarships have deadline dates of around the first of December.  National scholarships have deadlines in the fall as well.  More locally based scholarships given by individuals or groups have deadlines more in the spring semester.  Keep a check on our school website and along with any university's website that you plan on attending for updated scholarship deadlines.  There are resources available on our College Planning and Resources page that give good timelines on what to do when--- applying to universities, applying for scholarships, etc.
