    FAFSA

    ALL students who are considering attending college or any educational institution after high school should file a FAFSA (FREE Application for Federal Student Aid).   There has been a recent change to the FAFSA process. FAFSA is done online at https://fafsa.ed.gov/  

    Below are some resources for students and parents to learn more about the FAFSA .

    Scholarships

    The world of scholarship searching is a big one.  There are many websites and people out there that could potentially be helpful to you in your scholarship search.  We post scholarships to your Google Classroom that we receive in our office, and many of these are local in nature.  Please do not stop your search here because this is only a very small portion of what is out there. 

    The BNLHS Counseling Department doesn’t specifically endorse or recommend any one website, but we do know that many of our students have used www.fastweb.com and Unigo.com to build profiles and search for scholarships.

    For general college information, other good websites to check out are www.knowhow2go.com and www.collegeboard.org.  

    Also, don't forget that you should check with the schools you are applying to for school-specific scholarships...their websites are a great resource.

    Our only piece of advice regarding scholarship searches and/or websites is to be aware of any website, organization, or individual offering to help you find scholarships for a fee. Although not always the case, this can be very indicative of a scam. Never pay a fee to an organization offering to help you find scholarships.
