Wondering how to afford college?
Applying for scholarships can help to reduce the cost of college for families and students. Even though our local scholarships do not become available until later in the school year, students should get a jump start on applying for state and national scholarship competitions this summer.
Our community is extremely supportive of USA graduates as evidenced by the money they donate in scholarship dollars to graduating seniors each year. Businesses and clubs regularly make their scholarship applications available in February of a student's senior year.
Remember, the more scholarships you apply for, the greater likelihood you'll be chosen!
