Where Should I Start When it Comes to the Scholarship Search Process:
1) FAFSA-This becomes available October 1st.  Don't forget to give Mrs. Bergholtz a copy of your FAFSA submission page.

2) Use the scholarship listings document below.
 
3) Visit the financial aid pages of the colleges/universities you're interested in attending.  These scholarships will only be available to students interested in attending those specific schools.
 
4) Keep your eyes and ears open for any local scholarships that may be available through banks, churches, stores, etc.
 
5) Remember: You will get 0% of the scholarships you don't apply for.  Applying for scholarships is well worth the time and effort it takes to submit the applications.  You may not win them all, but some is better than none.  Follow the scholarship application's directions exactly as they are stated and turn them in before the deadline.  Build and save a file of essays you can use for scholarship and college applications; you can always re-use and amend these essays in order to fit the requirements of the various applications you're submitting.
 
6) Read LELA's College Planning Guidebook.  Call LELA's helpline at (844) 463-2372 for assistance with completing the FAFSA.  Bonus: You may win an iPad if you use LELA's helpline.
Seniors were given a copy of the guidebook, but it can also be accessed here.
Please use the document below as a resource to complete your FAFSA* and TOPS Consent Form, as well as search for and apply to scholarships.
 
*The FAFSA application MUST be completed in order to satisfy graduation requirements.  Once you submit the FAFSA application, please email Mrs. Bergholtz (tristen.bergholtz@jpsbschools.us) a screenshot or copy of your submission page.  If you do not complete the FAFSA, you must complete a waiver form (located in the document below) and turn this form into Mrs. Bergholtz.  All items must be received no later than May 1, 2020.
 
This checklist will help you gather the information and materials you'll need to complete the FAFSA before you get started.
