   Scholarships are an important part of a college life, especially if a student feels they do not have the money to pay for a semester or a year of tuition. Scholarships are not only a great opportunity to help with money but they can also aid in setting a goal.

   Guidance counselor, Evelyn Kabke, promotes good news about scholarships. “Students should absolutely apply for as many as they can. Otherwise, they may not be able to go to a college they prefer due to financial problems.” said Kabke.

   Science students, be alert! American Chemical Society Scholarships is sponsoring a scholarship program for qualified applicants who are interested in entering the fields chemistry, biochemistry, chemical engineering or other chemically related fields. Applications are said to be accepted until March 1, 2013. To apply online, visit                  

   Promoting Future Educators Scholarships is offering something a bit different. If there is a graduating senior who plans to attend a post-secondary training program that will certify them to work with special education students in the public school place, then this would be a good scholarship for those students to apply for. Applications are available in the guidance office, but the deadline is April 12, 2013. 

   Furthermore, athletes may want to check out the Big Sun Scholarship. This organization can help young athletes succeed in their academic pursuits. They are offering  an annual $500 scholarship to a deserving student. Don’t worry; all student athletes are eligible to apply regardless of what sport they play. To apply, go to before June 21, 2013.

   Senior, Morgan Martin, an applicant for Dollars for Scholars, recommends that students should apply. “Colleges are expensive, and scholarships are basically free money to help pay off loans,” said Martin. 

   These aren’t the only available scholarships for this area, so ask the guidance office for the Scholarship Bulletin. Watch out for deadlines!
