As the 2015-16 school year enters the final stretch, Columbia seniors are encouraged to apply for scholarships to assist with their college education.
More than 20 local scholarships are still available with award amounts up to $10,000, and more scholarships added weekly.
“Outside scholarship opportunities are another piece of the financial aid puzzle,” said Guidance Counselor Allison Milazzo. “Many times the financial aid packages from colleges do not meet the full need of students and their families. Outside scholarships can help students and families defer the cost of tuition or miscellaneous costs such as textbooks.”
Interested students should login to Naviance where they can search scholarships by academic field and award amount.
