Seniors: Scholarship Information

We wanted to let you know about some available scholarship opportunities, with deadlines coming up just after break:

Illinois School Counselor Association (ISAC) Student Scholarship:  ISAC offers two (2) $1,000 scholarships annually to Illinois High School seniors. For more information & to complete the ISAC application, please click here.

Illinois Association for College Admission Counseling (IACAC) Scholarship:  IACAC offers ten (10) $1,000 scholarships annually to Illinois High School seniors. For more information & to complete the IACAC application, please click here.

These are just two of the many local, state & national scholarships available to seniors who will be graduating this school year. We encourage seniors to check the scholarship list within Naviance, as it is constantly being updated with new opportunities.

Students can also use third-party websites  (FastWeb.com, CollegeBoard.org) in their scholarship search. However, we strongly encourage students to create a separate email address for scholarship applications, to protect the integrity of their primary email's inbox.

And always remember these two things when applying for scholarships:

  1. NEVER pay to apply for a scholarship/scholarship assistance
  2. If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.
