COUNSELORS CORNER

Did you know??? Financial Aid in the form of student loans isn't the only way to pay for college! There are many options for students such as grants (money that doesn't have to be paid back), work study, college issued scholarships, and private scholarships. Unlike college issued scholarships which are only good for those specific schools, private scholarships are awarded by private groups so students can take them to the school of their choice. There is no limit to how much a student can earn in scholarships, and every little bit helps reduce the out of pocket cost of furthering your education.


Don't know where to look? That's OK! We are here to help you begin your search and to answer questions. For example, the College Board still has several "Opportunity Scholarships" available, new scholarships are listed on the Combs High School Counseling page as soon as we get the information, and there are several search sites students can take advantage of to find those lesser known options. Use these links to explore:

Just remember that these scholarships often have due dates...don't let an opportunity pass you by!
