It is never too early to start looking for financial support for your future education and training. Please check-in with this page regularly to see our featured scholarships monthly, review our scholarship book, and you can also contact Brandon Neal  to set-up a time to come and work on scholarships or discuss content by dropping into room 607.  Below are our featured scholarships for October, but our scholarship book is also linked to this website and students can search by different areas of interest. The scholarship book is listed below our featured scholarships. (NOTE: The scholarship book is being updated from last year, there are some links that need to be fixed. Our staff is actively working on it.)
