College/Scholarship Information

Senior students who applied to college, filled out the FAFSA, and are waiting for their financial aid award letter, please be aware: Award letters will NOT be going out until April sometime from colleges. This letter breaks down the cost to attend a college and what financial assistance the college is willing to offer. This would include grants, scholarships, loans, and UNMET need amounts. Colleges will not be receiving your FAFSA information until March sometime. This may greatly affect your FAFSA if you need to edit your answers. This also means that the final decision and commitment window in choosing your college for the fall is narrower. As we receive updates, we will let you know.

• Seniors: The Country Visions Cooperative has released applications for their scholarships. This is for students of families who are members of the Country Visions Cooperative or CP Feeds, LLC and have purchased at least $2,000 worth of goods and services in the year prior to the application. Application forms are available in Student Services.

• Seniors: Studying to be a nurse in the fall and accepted into a nursing program? The Nurse Corps Scholarship Program has their applications out for fall college. This program provides extensive financial support. Graduates agree to be employed for a minimum of a 2-year commitment at an approved Critical Shortage Facility upon graduation. To apply visit: bhw.hrsa.gov/funding/apply-scholarship/nurse-corps. An informational sheet is also posted outside of Student Services.
