Now What?

Seniors, as you wrap up your applications, you'll certainly feel like celebrating! But, this is no time to let down your guard. Colleges may communicate with you as they work through the admissions process. Pay close attention to:

Your email account
Temporary student portal
Your home mailbox

It's a good idea to check these tools daily or at least several times a week! Click for more Additional Information!

***

There are many good scholarship search tools/engines on the internet. Their primary function is to assist you in finding scholarships that match the eligibility criteria you enter for GPA, gender, residency, ethnicity/heritage, religion and area of study, hobbies, interests — some of the most common criteria used. The College Map team recommends the following search engines:

Scholarships.com

FastWeb

Big Future

Unigo

SallieMae

Please make sure to "click" or fill out as much information as possible. Once you've entered your information into the database, the search engine will generate a list of all current scholarships you qualify for. We recommend sorting that list by due date.

Scholarships

SENIORS! Institutional Scholarships

Institutional Scholarships are merit-based financial awards provided to you through the college/university you have applied to. Many of your schools will automatically consider you for scholarships, but please make sure that you are checking your individual school's websites for any additional freshman scholarships you may be eligible for that require a separate application. Several schools like, Auburn, Carnegie Mellon, Stetson and Alabama offer NON-automatic consideration scholarships.
We welcome seniors to attend boot camp on Wednesdays to work on scholarships after you have submitted your applications.
