Scholarship Dates

As I have mentioned before in this blog, the senior year is going to fly by. Here we are and we only have a week and a half left in January. I can't remind you enough that if you are planning on going to college, you should be working on your FAFSA now. You also need to keep checking our student services calendar for upcoming dates for all our scholarships. I also have all the scholarships listed on our website but you can also click here. The following scholarships are coming due within the next month and one of the scholarships is due at the end of the month:

Jan 31st - Elks Legacy Scholarship
Feb 8th - AG FFA Scholarship
Feb 10th - Paulding Putnam Electric Scholarship
Feb 10th - Stolly Insurance Scholarship
Feb 14th - Educational Office Professionals Scholarship
Feb 15th - AWS Welding Scholarships
Feb 22nd - Ohio Credit Union Scholarship

Once you get to our scholarship page, there will be links that you can click on to download the application. If you have any questions, please stop in my office and see me. Now would be a good time to go through the college checklist I handed out to all of you. If you don't have one, please stop by the office and pick one up. Some of the main points of the checklist are:

1) Take the ACT
2) Apply to your colleges of interest
3) Have parents complete income tax early
4) Fill out the FAFSA soon after Jan. 1st
5) Fill out scholarships
6) Visit colleges that have invited you to enroll
7) Contact the colleges financial aid office
8) Once decided, contact the school you want to attend and let them know you will attend.
