• Scholarships

    Why are scholarships important?

         Scholarships provide opportunity for many students to earn an education. In some cases, without assistance from outside sources, students may have trouble affording the degree that they will need in order to achieve their goals. Scholarships can have a great impact on helping a student to earn their degree and become a contributing member of society. Scholarships can lessen the financial strain many students will face during their years at university, and upon leaving school.

    Where does the funding for scholarships come from?

         Funding can come from a variety of different sources. School alumni programs, large and small companies, and private donors are just to name a few.

    What types of scholarships are available?

         Academic: Exceptional performance in academics
         Athletic: Exceptional performance in athletics or team leadership
         Artistic: Exceptional performance in the arts
         Private: Some scholarships will have their own requirements to include things such as:
         volunteering, community service, skilled trade, etc.

    How much money will a scholarship give me?

         It depends on the individual scholarship. Please note, many scholarships will not cover the entire cost of tuition. Most scholarships will have funds allocated for specific portions of curriculum or supplies that the student must pay their school for. We encourage students to apply for as many scholarships as they qualify for. You are not limited to how many scholarships you may apply to, or how many or a certain financial amount you may receive.

         Scholarships can play a huge part in lessening the financial burden placed upon students, and often, their parents. Take advantage of our scholarship program, and apply, apply, apply!
