Scholarships

As you adjust to learning at home, don’t forget to spend some time searching and applying for scholarships!!  Use the following resources with your search:

  1. Your school counselor – they are just an email, a phone call, or Google Classroom away.
  2. Cumberland County School’s Scholarship page provides links for all different types of scholarships for a range of students. – http://counselors.ccs.k12.nc.us/scholarshipsfinancial-aid/
  3. College Foundation of North Carolina (CFNC) is a non-profit organization that works with NC students to help prepare them for the future.  As a part of their services, they provide information on financial aid, grants, and scholarships. Visit the website to learn more: https://www.cfnc.org/paying/schol/all_schols.jsp
  4. Scholarship Search Engines: There are many other scholarship sites out there that ask students to create profiles.  Based on your answers, scholarships will be identified that the student is eligible for. These sites include:myscholly.comwww.fastweb.comwww.cappex.com, www.unigo.com.
  5. If you have already been accepted, take a look at your future college/university financial aid website.  Many schools have their own scholarships students can apply for; however, those deadlines come early and they may have already passed.

Overall, if you are just uncertain where to start, take a look at this article for help: Scholarship Platforms – What Do I Need to Know?, Finding and Applying for Scholarships.

Lastly, PLEASE DON’T FORGET TO LET YOUR SCHOOL COUNSELORS KNOW ABOUT ANY $ YOU HAVE BEEN AWARDED!  We want to brag about you!!!!
