LOCAL AND GRAY SCHOLARSHIPS

These range in criteria depending on the source. Some examples include academic success, financial need, future college and/or planned major, sports involvement, or activity involvement. Students will fill out one application that puts them in the running for all of the scholarships. See the Scholarship Database (2nd tab).

FINANCIAL AID:

FAFSA deadlines

Students and families may qualify for financial aid through a variety of facets.  It is important to do research and identify which avenue is best for each student’s individual family situation. The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is available October 1 for current seniors. The federal financial aid includes grants, loans, and work-study funds. Visit the website ASAP to fill out the information. You will need a federal student aid PIN in order to fill this out, so request it first. Each college has its own deadline to make sure you are aware of important dates. Aid is given on a first come, first served basis, so don't delay!
