• The scholarships that are listed here are presently outdated.  HOWEVER, they are scholarships that are likely still offered but the deadline dates, amounts or links may not be current.  They may be worth looking into though.  Since September 2016, I have been emailing parents and students directly with scholarship information.  I also still post some on the scholarship board by my office.  Please remember that this is a very small portion of scholarships that are available to students.  I strongly recommend that students sign-up for a fastweb and washboard account.  These links are directly below.
