What are scholarships?

A scholarship is free money for college.  Some scholarships come in the form of a cash award and some will require that you provide evidence that you are enrolled in school before a check can be released.  Either way, it's free.  In addition, some scholarships can be renewed, which means you are awarded a scholarship to be used during your freshman year of college and, if you're GPA is high enough, the same organization will renew the scholarship for the next award.
You should apply as early as your junior year of high school.  If you win the scholarship, it will be reserved for you for when you register for college.  You should also continue applying for scholarships when you are already in college.  Visit your college financial aid office and continue to check the websites below for scholarship opportunities.
As a senior, be sure to sign up for membership with the Bell Gardens High School PTSA.  It's only $10 and your membership will make you eligible for several local scholarships offered through our school.  You can pick up a PTSA membership form from your 2nd period teacher in the Fall or from the Principal's Office.  Also, check the Counselor's Office frequently to make sure you don't miss any scholarship opportunities.
You should apply for 1-2 scholarships per week to improve your chances.  Click on the links on the right of this page to get started!

Good luck!
