    Chester-Joplin-Inverness High School

    National, State and Local Scholarships

     

     

    These are the scholarship notices that have come across my desk so far. I update the list as I receive new information. It would be nearly impossible to list all the scholarships available, many of which I do not receive hard copies. Therefore, please be sure to check the additional links I have listed for other scholarship information. Also, access your MCIS portfolio (Montana Career Information System) at www.mtcis.intocareers.org and check out the financial aid search function of that website. If you need help, please see me at school or e-mail me at loraw@cji.k12.mt.us. Please inform me of any awards/scholarships you may receive as I am keeping a running tally of what our talented students receive.

     
    Please check application deadlines carefully, especially for those with on-line applications. I often do not receive notification of deadline adjustments, so plan ahead and double check when they are due. Good Luck!

    Scholarship Hints

    Use the following helpful hints as you begin the process of applying for scholarships. The students who are most successful at earning scholarships are students who follow these points:

     

    1. Remember that applying for scholarships is the responsibility of the student.

    2. Chester-Joplin-Inverness High School is not notified of all scholarships available at a particular college, so students are encouraged to contact the college they hope to attend and ask for information on freshman scholarships.

    3. Don’t procrastinate! Get busy on this part of your college planning early and stay on top of it. Your success will depend on your perseverance, organization, and your ability to meet deadlines.

    4. Be sure to give your teachers and counselor adequate time to write recommendations for you. Two weeks is a good rule of thumb. Give them a list of activities and awards that are noteworthy in the recommendation. When given sufficient time, teachers can write a meaningful letter that truly reflects each student’s unique qualities.

     
    Here is a resource that may help you in finding scholarships. http://www.goodcall.com/scholarships/ 
     
     LendEDU's goal is to help students, graduates, and parents learn the ins and outs of paying for college and managing, saving, and growing money. To help achieve this goal, they regularly post articles to their blog about a variety of topics. You can find useful tips and information about student loans, credit cards, personal loans, saving money, and much more.
