Look for many more to come out in the next few weeks. ALSO, all students in my College Readiness class have set up a ScholarshipQuest account. This account will directly pair them with national and Nebraska scholarships that they are directly eligible to apply for. This site is truly amazing as it does all the searching and pairing for the kids. As a parent you may want to sit down and have your student log into this account so you can see what it looks like!
The December ACT late registration deadline is THIS Friday for any student who wants to give the ACT one more shot. Many schools are telling us they will still take the December ACT for scholarship consideration. Remember, a 25 and above gets you full tuition at Chadron State, Wayne State, and Peru State Colleges and a 21-24 get's half!! I encourage all students to apply to Chadron, Wayne, and Peru with their easy and free application process!
The students also need to work on scholarship applications for the SPECIFIC colleges they applied to. Example: Once you are admitted to Chadron State College you must log into your MyCSC account and click the To Do List to access the scholarship link and fill out the online scholarship form. These deadlines are FAST approaching so there is little time to waste on apply to specific colleges and their college only scholarships.
Last but not least I am looking at incorporating a few Senior Scholarship Work Nights from 6-8 p.m. next semester. The tentative dates are January 15th (6-8) February 12th (6-8) look for more information to come next month!
I have attached the EducationQuest monthly bulletin, great information here! Please call or email if there are any questions.
