Scholarship Search

 

 

 What is a scholarship? FREE money for college, usually awarded based on merit and academics (that means grades) or based on other eligibility requirements, such as financial needs (that means your family's income). This is only one type of financial aid a student can receive.

 

Applying for scholarships is always free! Do NOT pay anyone or any organization to find scholarships. And, do NOT have your parents do this for you :) Remember you are the one who is attending college next year and all scholarships, grants, and loans will be the STUDENT name, so students should be doing this...of course parents can assist!

 

When should students apply for scholarships? ASAP during senior year, but some are even offered for younger grades. Research all throughout high school.

 

Where & how should students look for scholarships? Visit the College & Career Center for the “Scholarship Binder,” listen for announcements in the bulletin, check out the school website www.kahukuhigh.org, and visit online sites. Stay organized and keep track of dates and deadlines.

 

1. College & Career Center in the “Scholarship Binder”

  • Read through the scholarships to figure out which ones you are eligible for (only apply to those you are eligible for)
  • Write down information or take a copy (let us know if it’s the last one!)
  • Apply & follow up
  • Continue to research and find scholarships on your own
  • Let the College & Career Center know the outcome!

 

2. Search on the internet, but AVOID SCAMS—never pay for a scholarship!
