Unfortunately, not all scholarship services and scholarship providers are out to help students. Remember:
- Financial aid/scholarships should be a FREE process.
- No sponsor can guarantee that you will win an award!
If a site or service asks for a credit card or bank account information, you are in the wrong place! Other sites and services are interested in gathering personal information to sell. If you have any doubts, ask your counselor or see Ms. Bunzli in the Career Center! Scholarship help is always available in the Career Center.
The following is a list of recommended sites for you to use in addition to the Scholarship List on Naviance.
General Sites Sites For Hispanic/AB 540 Students
Scholarships for Children of Police Officers and Firefighters
Nursing Scholarship Sites for Nursing Students
