ScholarshipS

The EHS Counseling Department is frequently notified of scholarships throughout the year which are then posted on this Scholarship web page. If you are looking for other scholarship opportunities, take time to search what's available throughout our community. Many organizations may offer awards for future and current college students. Ask your parent/guardians’ employers and unions if they sponsor scholarships for children of employees. Take advantage of scholarship search and matching services for local, regional, state, and national awards and college-specific scholarships. More information on the scholarship search process can be found on the US Department of Education's website for Financial Aid.

The current scholarship opportunities are listed below. Following this section, you'll find a link to any expired scholarships that were offered for this school year.  Any scholarship that has passed its deadline has been included in the link at the end of this page.  This is a reference list in case you would need to refer to a specific scholarship that was offered earlier this year.
