Scholarship Search Sites

Hello Seniors! It’s time to begin your scholarship search!

The majority of scholarship award money typically received is from the college where you have been accepted or applied.  Once you have finished institutional scholarships, I suggest the 4 Websites below to begin your national and local scholarship search. Scholarship searches take time, organization (deadlines) and research. Please reach out to me if you need help with your search or scholarship essays. If you need supporting documents sent to individual scholarships, I am happy to send out anything you need to apply. Happy Scholarship Searching!

Once you’ve been admitted & decided on a college, check out  

their financial aid page, which often has information on scholarships  

available to their students.  

The following is a list of scholarship programs that have shared information with La Salle. This list is for your convenience and is not meant to serve as an endorsement of the programs listed. It is the student and parents’ responsibility to verify details and factors about these programs. Please contact your counselor if you have specific questions about scholarships.
