Students plan for the future
“Most of the scholarships must be applied for online, and we encourage seniors to apply for as many as they can,” White said. “The majority of these can be used at any college or university, and some include technical and community colleges.”
The applications, which may be based on parental income, grades or extracurricular involvement, are usually extensive and require an essay, White said. In some classes, like that of one senior English teacher, students are required to apply for at least one scholarship every nine weeks to help them see the process is manageable.
