Scholarships

Scholarships are awards of money that can help students fund a college education. Scholarships typically do not have to be paid back, though students may have to meet certain expectations  or commitments to maintain a scholarship. Scholarships are awarded based on specific criteria set by the provider (e.g. merit-based, need-based, athletic or artistic talent, affiliation with a certain group, etc.)  Listed below are local, state, and national scholarships that have been promoted to the EHS counselors. Keep in mind that there are MANY more scholarships out there! Check for scholarships where you bank, where you work (or where your parents work), at your place of worship, etc. See your counselor if you have any questions about scholarships! Remember, you should NEVER pay to apply for a scholarship. If it asks for a payment, it's probably a scam!
