SCHOLARSHIPS - PROCEDURAL CHANGE Due to some reorganization at the district level, neither the paper copy that was earlier available on Fridays nor the scholarship applications in the Scholarship File Cabinet will be available for pick up in the Counseling Center. These will be replaced by internet searches and downloads. ScholarshipQuest at EducationQuest (http://www.educationquest.org/) has become the clearinghouse for scholarships with Nebraska ties. You can access this on the internet from your computer at home or from the computers in the counseling center: https://www.fes.org/scholarquest/s_login.asp After you log on, you will create a profile by answering questions and then ScholarshipQuest will suggest scholarships that you might want to apply for. Other scholarships (without specific Nebraska ties) can be searched for at the following recommended web sites: http://www.finaid.org/scholarships/unusual.phtml
We do have a limited number of hard copies of the LPS Foundation Scholarship Handbook available for pick up on a first-come basis while our supply lasts. Information on these scholarships is also available on the Scholarship Quest web site. All of this information is also linked on the LSW web site:
http://lsw.lps.org/>Popular Pages>Counseling Center >Planning After High School>Scholarships
If you have any questions about this, please contact your counselor.
