LINK TO MVHS SCHOLARSHIP GUIDE
The scholarships on this link are listed according to due date. Each scholarship shows whether it is local, state or national, the amount and the general target group, i.e. academic, community service, etc.
Local scholarships are your best option for $$ as the number of applicants will be smaller than both state and national competitions. But watch for state and national scholarships that are unique to you and take the time to fill these out.
Think of these scholarship applications as a job. If you fill out 10 of them and only receive 5, you could have a total of over $5000. When you consider that the average student ends up with over $20,000 in student loans at graduation, each scholarship can be a tremendous help.
