SCHOLARSHIP OPPORTUNITIES 2019-2020

Dear Parents and Students:

Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year!  Seniors and senior parents make sure you check the scholarship page periodically.  New scholarships will be posted in sequential order based upon the scholarship's due date.  Please read the scholarship qualifications and pay close attention to the deadlines. If you have any questions regarding scholarships, qualifications, or the application process please don't hesitate to contact me at sturner@isd116.org.  

A quick reminder, as you search for scholarship opportunities online, please make sure you don't pay money to an organization/institution for the privilege of applying for their scholarship. All legitimate scholarships and scholarship applications will not charge a fee for you to apply. Please be careful and read the scholarship details carefully before you give out any personal information.  As always, if you have questions about a particular scholarship please contact me. Local scholarships will become available later this spring.  

Best,

Mrs. Turner
