EXETER Scholarships! – Our community has very generous donors; many businesses, organizations, and families give away scholarships every year to EUHS students.

Scholarships are FREE money to pay for college & they do not just come to you….

YOU must carry the responsibility of seeking them out & applying!

 

  • Start your search! Set aside time for searching online and working on applications.
  • Check with parents and grandparent’s employers. Many companies have scholarships specifically for their employee’s dependents.
  • Start asking teachers, counselors, family friend professionals, employers, church leaders and other adults that know you for letters of recommendation. (Make sure to use the request form in Mrs. Montes' office) and give the person at least two weeks’ advance notice.
  • Write a solid essay! Chances are, you may be able to use the same essay (or a variation of it) for multiple scholarship applications. Don’t forget to PROOFREAD and ask someone else too!

SCHOLARSHIP SEARCH TIPS

1. Check Your Prospective Schools
Go to their website or call the financial aid office. If you meet the qualifications, find out how to apply. Don't assume that by applying for admission, you're applying for scholarships. It's often a separate process. Be aware that scholarship deadlines can be different from those set for the college admission application. Raising your GPA and test scores in high school will help increase your chances of earning merit aid.

 

 

2. Be Aware of Scholarship Deadlines
Deadlines vary by scholarship. To stay organized and keep track of due dates, we recommend keeping a calendar, and making your earliest deadline the deadline for all of your applications. Finally (and this cannot be stressed enough), do not miss deadlines. You'll have no recourse if your application arrives late, and you will have zero chance of receiving that award.
 
A word of caution: You should never pay money to investigate scholarships. Scholarship providers don't offer their awards to students who pay to find them; they offer them to all students.
