Scholarship Newsletter – March & April 2016

This scholarship newsletter will be updated on a bi-monthly basis. Each newsletter will be emailed and a limited number of hard copies will be available in the Guidance Office. All scholarship information can also be found under the ‘School Counseling’ link on the CATA homepage, which will have the most up-to-date scholarship information.



Don’t forget!! Make sure to report all scholarship awards you are OFFERED to Mrs. Cameron, even if you don’t plan to accept the scholarship!

College/University Scholarships

As you apply to colleges, please be sure to check the college/university website for a listing of scholarships and deadlines (either on the Admissions website or Financial Aid website). You will also want to research deadlines for applications, FAFSA information, and check to see if they require the CSS/Financial Aid PROFILE.



Do not be intimidated by the high costs of private colleges; they usually offer more scholarship money that helps offset the cost!
