Every month, a Scholarship Newsletter will be given to each Senior in their English classes regarding scholarship info, test dates, college information, etc.  If you do not have an English teacher, you came to the right place. Access the Scholarship Newsletters below. Updated information will be posted periodically...so check regularly.

Attention Seniors!  If you earn a scholarship anytime during the school year, notify your School Counselor as North is planning to start a Scholarship Hall of Fame Wall.

Scholarship and Financial Aid Newsletters

FAFSA Info

Seniors!

In order to be eligible to receive any federal financial aid, all high school seniors planning on pursuing college or career school must file their FAFSA. It is the ONLY way to apply for federal student aid.  Deadline to complete varies between colleges so be aware of the deadline your college has set.  If you are undecided on a college, then should complete FAFSA now.  More information can be found at:

Financial Aid Websites

SEARCHING THE INTERNET FOR INFORMATION (as of June, 2017)

     The following are some Internet information and search websites that the Counseling Office is aware of.  The Internet now is the main source of information and searches for colleges and financial aid.  However, you must exercise the same caution on the internet as you would in reviewing any other information.  Inclusion on this list, in particular, does not imply any reliability or guarantee of securing financial aid and/or scholarship funds.

      Be careful of what information you choose to provide on the internet.  NEVER provide your social security number or bank information.  NEVER pay any money, agree to pay any money, or provide credit card/debit card information to pay for a search service.  The same information provided for a fee almost always can be found for free at several other sources.   Be cautious about supplying your email address or cell phone number to college or financial aid resources, especially during an initial search process.  That could be a sign that the website is more interested in harvesting information to sell to other agencies, some less legitimate than others. Finally, don’t hesitate to back out of site if you feel you are being asked for inappropriate information.  Don’t submit anything and log out of the site if you feel you are being asked too early for inappropriate information.

 

     We welcome your feedback on these sites and on other sites that should be included on this list.
