STRICTLY SCHOLARSHIPS

Updated August 16, 2017

Welcome back!

Most local scholarships will become available in late December, but start looking at national scholarships now. Below are a few to get you started, but it is not an exhaustive list!

The FAFSA will open for completion on October 1, and every senior interested in any educational plan after high school should plan to complete it as soon as possible. Students and parents can create accounts at any time at http://fsaid.ed.gov, and beginning October 1, the FAFSA can be found at http://fafsa.gov.

 See Ms. Rosenthal in her office next to guidance with any questions, or contact her at lindsey.rosenthal@patrick.k12.va.us or 276-694-7137 ext. 241.
