Check out the listing on Naviance or ask a counselor or Ms. Sisk in the Future Center. (This scholarship is only for in-district students and they award 48 scholarships, so your chances are good!)

There is a potential to earn scholarship money after completing the program. Check out the Summer Opportunities wall in Student Services for more information and to pick up an application! The deadline to apply is April 15th, 2017.

  1. Hey Seniors! IF you have a 2.5 GPA (or close to it) and are thinking about your possible next steps after high school, don't forget to apply for the Oregon Promise, which opened in October. The Oregon Promise may cover some or all of your tuition for two years at any Oregon community college. There are a lot of 1 and 2 year certificates that can prepare you to go into the work force or you can go after a transfer degree and move onto a 4 year university to earn your Bachelor's degree. This is a great place to start for many students or great to use as a backup plan too. Go to www.oregonstudentaid.gov to start your application today! The deadline to apply is March 1st. See your counselor or Ms. Sisk in the Future Center for more information or for help.
