Scholarship Opportunities

What is the FAFSA?

FAFSA is the online application that all students must use to apply for federal financial aid as well as some scholarships. FAFSA is administered through the U.S. Department of Education. Submitting the FAFSA early is the key to getting a good financial aid award. You will need to complete the FAFSA each year you are in college. Go to

What information is required to fill out the FAFSA?

Students will need to provide information about their parent’s income. Students should fill out the FAFSA after January 1 of their senior year using an estimate regarding the income information. After their parents have actual figures from their 2016 income tax return, students will need to fill out a revised FAFSA using exact amounts. If the student’s parents are divorced, the student should use the financial information for the parent they live with.

Does the student need to fill out a FAFSA for each school they apply to?

No, fill out one FAFSA and the information will be sent to each college you list that you are applying to. If you want to add additional colleges later, you can fill out a revised FAFSA and list additional schools.

W. Price Jr. Memorial Scholarship: Seven $1,000 scholarships will be awarded to Texas seniors planning to attend a two-year or four-year college or a culinary college. Students must be a resident of Texas but can attend an out-of-state school and must be enrolling in a degreed foodservice or hospitality program. Students will need to enclose a transcript, letters of recommendation, and a 500-word essay with their completed application. The essay topic is on the student’s philosophy of the food service industry and how the scholarship will help them with their education and career choices. Applications are available in the Counseling Center. The application deadline is February 15, 2018.
