***BOVAY FOUNDATION GUARANTEED TUITION PROGRAM INFORMATION IS IN MRS. COOK'S OFFICE.

  • Now is the time to be finalizing your college plans.  I have lots of scholarship information in my office. Mrs. Gordon also has some great links on the library’s home page (LCHS Library Media Center) as well. Scroll down to College, Scholarships, and Financial Aid.  You may have to set up a profile, but many of them are worth it.  Remember, many colleges and universities have a December 1st deadline to apply for scholarships, so you need to get your applications in as soon as possible. There are also numerous scholarships links listed below.
  • ACT packets are in my outer office.  You may register by mail or online.
  • Check the bulletin board outside my office for scholarship information and college recruitment days.

  Scholarship Safety Tips

  • Never pay application fees or "entry fees" for scholarships. There are numerous scholarship search sites that are free. I have listed several of those links below.
  • Do not give your information to any scholarship that guarantees you will win.
  • Be careful with scholarship awards for which you have not applied or from schools to which you have not applied for admission. Check those scholarships out thoroughly!!
  • Do Not give your bank account numbers, social security number, or credit card information to unknown parties.
  • When in doubt, contact the school counselor for assistance in finding scholarships, researching scholarship offers, etc.
