Scholarship Information

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.
