WVDE School Counseling Page: Check out the WVDE School Counseling Page for a variety of helpful resources, including a scholarship listing. Visit http://wvde.state.wv.us/counselors/ and select the "students" tab on the left.
National Scholarships: Students planning to attend college should be actively seeking financial assistance. There is free money out there!! Who better to receive it than you? Three sites that we recommend to use in your search for scholarships are: Fastweb, College Board and Scholarships.com. Please be careful when using other sites. Unfortunately, there are sites that try to scam visitors. If it sounds too good to be true, then it probably is. Be wary of sites with guarantees, upfront costs and/or credit card information requests. For more information about scams or potential scholarships, visit http://www.finaid.org/.
Academic Common Market: The Academic Common Market provides students who are seeking a specialized degree not offered in WV the opportunity to pay in-state tuition at an out-of-state institution. Click here to search for available programs.
Letters of Recommendation: You need to ask individuals for letters of recommendation at least two weeks prior to the date that you need them. Do NOT wait until the day before your scholarship is due to approach your references. In order to receive a great letter of recommendation, your references need time to review your credentials. How are they to do this? Before approaching someone for a letter of recommendation, you should prepare a resume highlighting your high school experiences. This will allow you to showcase your accomplishments, many of which your reference may not know about. You want to provide your reference with as much information as possible so they can accurately describe how AMAZING you are! Click here to access a sample resume format. You may want to add to, delete, reformat, etc to this resume. It is simply a sample from a former student.
