8th through 11th Grade Scholarship:
Value: $1,500
Deadline: May 31

12th Grade Scholarship:
Value: Up to $10,000

Have your students consider the pros and cons of living off-campus during college.


TIP OF THE MONTH:

Encourage your students to bring a sibling, cousin, or friend along with them on their college campus visits. If they encourage them to go to college as they learn about college themselves, that friend, cousin or sibling will be much more likely to go to college later on as well. Spread the college-going culture!


 From tuition and fees to room and board, there are many different
things included in the overall cost of college. It's important that your students understand all the different things that are included in their overall cost of college.
