Winning a Scholarship Quick Reference Guide

College Greenlight  At College Greenlight we connect first generation and underrepresented students to caring colleges, generous scholarships, and life-changing counselors and mentors.Its mission is to improve college access for low income and first generation students. College Greenlight has an online application where students set up a profile and then they can apply to any of their partner colleges with no application fee, and with a single application. Students set up a profile, and get notifications from colleges that are interested in communicating with them.  Students have the option of accepting the invitation, in which case the college sends them messages through the website, or declining the invitation, in which case they shouldn't hear any more from that college. They also have a scholarship search engine. For College Green light website click here

BEWARE OF SCHOLARSHIP SCAMS

Scholarship Search Websites:

  1. TIP: The internet is a great resource tool for your scholarship search. There is plenty of FREE information available, so NO need to pay for a scholarship search service.  BE CAUTIOUS with your personal information and don’t pay for information that is free. You may want to set up a second e-mail that you use just for scholarship search information. This helps you review and eliminate junk e-mails. Good Luck!!!
  2. NOTE: Please tell your counselor about any scholarships that you have been awarded so that we can recognize and celebrate your achievement at Graduation.
