Scholarship Information

Scholarships are a great way to help finance a college education because they are essentially free money students can use to pay tuition, purchase books and supplies, and help with room and board. 
Here are a few tips to help get you started:
  1. Contact the FINANCIAL AID OFFICE of the school where you apply for admission.
  2. Listen for announcements at school.
  3. Conduct scholarship searches online at sites such as Fastweb, GaFutures, and others to access applications for scholarships, grants and loans as well as the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)
  4. Check the eligibility criteria and deadlines before you apply for the scholarship.
  5. Check the HOPE scholarship, HOPE provides money to outstanding Georgia students who plan to attend college in Georgia.
Please visit these general scholarship website links to get started searching for free money
  The Students of the Year Campaign is an eight-week initiative in which nominated High School students participate in a fundraising competition to benefit The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society Georgia Chapter. Nominated students are selected as Student of the Year candidates via a committee. Selection is based upon an application submitted by each interested student. Candidates will raise money in honor of a youth patient hero who is currently battling or is in remission from a blood cancer. The candidate who raises the most money at the end of the eight weeks is named Student(s) of the Year. The campaign will launch on January 10, 2019 and will culminate with a Grand Finale celebration on March 8, 2019, where the winners will be announced. The Student of the Year will receive a $2,500 scholarship to a college or university of his/her choice. In addition, one candidate team will be awarded a Citizenship Award. The Citizenship Award winner will receive a $1,000 scholarship to a college or university of his/her choice.
