    Scholarship Bulletin is posted on this website, emailed to the student's school email account and posted on the Google Classroom. The Scholarship Bulletin lists a few of the scholarships in which our students might be interested.  It is the student’s responsibility to get the necessary paperwork (transcripts, letters of recommendations, etc.) and submit applications in a timely manner.   Most scholarships are due to the organization that is providing the scholarship. Students will only turn the application in to the College and Career Lab Specialist, if the Scholarship Bulletin directly states to do so. 

    Students and parents can find activities and tips for college and career planning in the Google Classroom.
