Private Scholarships

Some organizations offer educational funding which must be filtered through our office if you are receiving federal aid. Organizations that offer such funds may be (but are not limited to) the following: high school, church, employers (you or your parents), clubs to which you or your parents belong (Rotary, Elks, Daughters of the American Revolution, etc.), organizations for which you have done volunteer work, and possible future employers.

You may also seek private scholarships through web sites such as www.fastweb.com, http://www.scholarshipexperts.com or http://www.zinch.com. DO NOT PAY FOR ASSISTANCE IN FINDING SCHOLARSHIPS OR FINANCIAL AID. We can offer the same services for free through our office. Please contact Nellie Lee for additional information.
