Scholarship Opportunities


Paying for college may seem daunting, but luckily there are MILLIONS of scholarships out there just waiting for smart, talented, young people like you!  There are scholarships for academics, athletics, cultural backgrounds, hobbies/interests, preparing for the zombie apocalypse... seriously!  There is something for everybody. 


Here's a list of some scholarships for the 2018-2019 school year. Keep in mind that most scholarships are open during the Spring but there are some that open early so make sure to check back often! This list is organized by deadline to make it easier for you to prioritize.


Scholarship List 2018-2019


Scholarships for undocumented/AB-540 eligible students



Here are some scholarship search engine sites that are designed to make finding the right scholarship for you easy:




RaiseMe is a unique platform that allows you to earn "micro-scholarships" for the things that you already do! When you create a free account you can follow colleges and universities that interest you and see what they offer for your accomplishments. You can earn money for things like getting an A, taking an AP class, playing a sport, attending a college fair and much more! Start earning as early as the 9th grade and whatever you accumulate during your high school career will be the minimum guaranteed scholarship towards that specific college once you've been accepted (admission is not guaranteed).


Be aware that not all scholarship sites are looking out for the students' best interests. Remember applying for scholarships should be FREE!  If any site asks you for a credit card number, you’re not in the right place.  If you have any doubts, ask your counselor or stop by the career center.

Tips for Writing Your Scholarship Essay



Many scholarships ask you to write an essay as part of the application process as a means to get to know you; this gives you a chance to convince them of why you deserve the award over other applicants.
