Scholarships can be found in Naviance under Colleges tab, under
Scholarships & Money, click on Scholarship List to see what is currently available. Click here for Naviance.
Scholarships and grants can be awarded by multiple sources: colleges and universities, businesses, companies, non-profits, and local individuals.
The subpages below offer some options to obtain these financial awards. Most are "free" money (you don't have to pay it back), but what it does require is leg-work on your part. Applications, recommendations and essays are just some of the requirements that take your time. But it can be well worth it!
**It is recommended, to prevent unwanted spam and continuous emails after you head off to college, that you set up a separate email address to use for scholarship accounts. Maybe something like "firstname.lastname@example.org". Just remember to check it!
WESTERN UNDERGRADUATE EXCHANGE SCHOLARSHIPS (WUE)
