Scholarships vary with criteria, major, college, service, and extra curricular activities. Students should access the following 4 areas to get the most information regarding scholarships: 1) their intended college, 2) free and legitimate scholarship searches (several listed below), 3) non-local scholarship information from their high school counselor (register to receive my group emails), and 4) Brodhead specific local scholarships (not included on this list and available in March).
Note - my group email list and Facebook page is more inclusive than the list below.
Scholarships are available in the counseling office. They are listed according to due dates. Students are responsible for knowing specifics about due dates and are strongly encouraged to submit materials early.
C = good for 4 year college
T = good for technical college
No deadline: Tip Grant applications are in the high school guidance office. Not all items need to be mailed at the same time. Start the application process early. Need based. See Mrs. Flory with questions.
