**Go to your colleges website and apply there!**
As always, I am happy to help you with anything. I will proofread your essays or your applications! I can also write letters of recommendation for you.
If a scholarship is due at 9am that does not mean you can ask to get out of your 1st hour class to work on it. Get organized, write due dates down, work ahead.
If you get these done before the due date, give them to me or put them in the red folder on my desk that is labeled "Scholarships".
When a college representative comes to the school, they will come during lunch. You may bring your lunch tray to the library and eat during the presentation. Teachers will dismiss students going during the first bell. Grades 10, 11, and 12 are welcome.
Seniors are allowed to days to visit colleges they are interested in. Juniors are allowed one day to do this.
