The following is a new resource which may prove to be helpful:
Campus Explorer is giving away a $1,000 scholarship EVERY MONTH for college-bound students, and we want to make sure the students at Eustace High know about it.
The scholarship is open to students who are college-bound, so students are eligible to apply if they are at least 16 years old. This is a great opportunity for high school juniors and seniors, who need financial assistance during their college search. Students can use the scholarship for SAT classes or tutors, application fees, campus visits, and more. Plus, students who are already taking college courses can use the scholarship for tuition.
The best part: Your students can go to our website http://CampusExplorer.com/campus-explorer-scholarships and apply for the latest scholarship every month.
