We recommend all students, regardless of financial need, inquire about scholarship opportunities available through the financial aid office at the institution they plan to attend. Students who have declared an academic major should also discuss scholarship availability with faculty and administration in their academic departments.
Extensive college planning and funding information is available on numerous Web sites. Some of those scholarship sites include:
The College Board
College Foundation of North Carolina
Free Application for Federal Student Aid
National Association for College Admission (NACAC)
Peterson's Thompson Learning Colleges & Universities

Student Aid on the Web
