The Counseling office has complied a list of scholarships. This is not a comprehensive list, but it is a starting point for students. Please check back often for updates. Don't forget 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. Your name will be added to a special insert in the graduation program.
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.
Unfortunately, scholarship scams exist. The rule of thumb is that if something sounds to good to be true, it probably is. The truth is, there are not billions of scholarship dollars that go unclaimed each year. There is money out there, and it does not have to cost a penny to apply for this funding-it costs time and effort, though. 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!
