Preparing for Scholarship Season

Visit for guidelines on the scholarships available for the 2014-2015 academic year. The Claes Nobel Academic Scholarships and National Scholar Awards application will open in December online in the member dashboard and the others soon after - you may wish to start gathering the information you will need: personal statement about your goals and accomplishments and a resume of awards, honors, leadership activities, service activities, clubs, extracurricular activities. Be thinking of an educator to provide a recommendation for you, and how to request your transcript. Also, review the scholarship application tips that have been gathered from a variety of scholarship recipients and scholarship providers: Scholarship Application Tips

Congratulations to all of our 2013-2014 scholarship recipients.
