Dear Seniors,

I know you all are busy, but there's free money out there! Many scholarship applications require essays, but you may be able to write one solid essay and then tweak it to use for other applications. Make sure to have someone proofread your essay and application before submitting it. There is a lot of scholarship money at colleges/universities through the institution and/or foundations. If you want to know if the college you have applied to has scholarships, search for the scholarship site on your college/university's website. Many institutional scholarship processes are different. Pay CLOSE attention to deadlines for admission applications and scholarship application deadlines. Don't let the money run out before you decide to apply!

Good luck!!

Mrs. Gallman
