Searching for scholarships is a student-directed activity that requires planning, commitment, and persistence. The best place for students to search for scholarships is online. Our advice to students:
- Look for free search engines with personalized searches based on your qualifications. See below for examples.
- Avoid websites that charge fees or promise excessive unclaimed scholarships; they are usually scams.
- Check college websites or talk to college admissions counselors for college-specific scholarships.
- Join the Career Center Schoology Group to view scholarships mailed or emailed to MSHS. Scholarships are posted when received to the Scholarship List in resources.
- Apply for Local Scholarships through MSHS. Information about local scholarships will be provided during a Senior Meeting held at the end of February and then posted on this website.
- Access scholarship advice from the US Department of Education here.
