Regardless of what you plan to do with your life, or where you will be after college… you need money to do it. In the world we live in, money is what makes the world go ‘round. If you take advantage of the resources available to you, the journey that is life after high school might be a little easier.
November is National Scholarship Month! I challenge you to take just one hour out of your day and research scholarships that you are eligible for. Don’t wait until the end of your senior year to apply! Start today!
As students of Rossview High School, we are lucky enough to have a guidance team that works tirelessly to ensure that we have the resources we need to succeed. As they are able to schedule a meeting at any time or answer a quick email, contact your guidance counselor with questions you have regarding both college admissions and scholarships. Not only are they accessible, but the guidance team works together to provide their students with each and every scholarship they are informed of. Those can be found under “Scholarships” on the website below.

In addition to school resources, take stock of the world outside of high school. There are thousands upon thousands of scholarships out there if you look hard enough. Find those obscure ones! Find the ones that only you are able to apply to because you stand out in some way!

Just like anything on the Internet, it is important to make sure that the site you are on is safe, and that the scholarship is legitimate. Looking up the scholarship is always a good idea, as well as looking at the reviews that it may have, or even warnings.
Apply for every scholarship you can and remember the following statement: no amount of money is too small to go for!
