Ninth, Tenth and Eleventh Graders - you do not need to wait to apply for scholarships!!!!  There are a bunch of scholarships that are open to students in all grades.  As you can see from my favorite college scholarship site, there are even scholarships available to students in middle school.  And here is another cool tool: on Raise Me students can keep a running list of their high school achievements -- grades, attendance, serving as an officer of a class or club -- and earn merit scholarships from participating colleges (if they decide to attend that school).  It's a great way for younger students to see how their hard work can expand their college opportunities!

Thinking ahead to college?  College Bound is a great scholarship and resource program for seventh and eighth graders in Washington State who are low income or in foster care. 

Done with college applications?  Time to apply for scholarships!
Big aggregator sites have some value, but it's also important to have a scholarship search that starts locally and works its way out. That's why the Palouse Pathways Scholarship Club is compiling a data base that will identify all the local scholarships for our region. And we're even paying students to add to it! You should really join the scholarship club!  Check back here for more information.
