All El Camino students have access to our Naviance Family Connections website! Naviance offers tools and resources to aid in Career, College and Scholarship searches. Simply click the Naviance logo on the El Camino homepage and use your ECHS student ID as Username AND Password.
Parents, you can register for your account by clicking the “I need to register” link on the right, and entering your student’s ID number followed by a p (example: 123456p)
Once you are into your Naviance Family Connection Account click on the Colleges tab, and under the Scholarships & Money section you will find the Scholarship List link. You will be taken to the current scholarship list. Remember that scholarships tend to be seasonal, so check back often. The list tends to be very short in fall, but quite extensive in spring.
By clicking on a specific scholarship link, you will be given a short description of the scholarship and its criteria, and directions to accessing an application. Some will have links to websites or allow you to download the application. Read and follow the directions carefully, and respect the deadlines! Use the “Add Selected Scholarship to My List” button to help you stay organized. This will place the scholarships under the “Scholarship Application” link.
There are numerous scholarship services and sites.
Be aware - 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 to 3rd parties. If you have any doubts, ask your counselor or see Ms. Bunzli in the College & Career Center!
