WELCOME!!

Welcome to our first Scholarship News! This will be a monthly publication that contains information about scholarships with upcoming deadlines within the next month or two, with monthly updates to keep your scholarship list going! Some of these scholarships will be shared with us via email, mail, or even walk-in delivery and you may not be able to find them through internet searches. Other scholarships will be shared from things we find on the internet. That is why we feel it is important to share this newsletter with you as a supplement to your scholarship search!
