APPLYING FOR SCHOLARSHIPS
There are two types of scholarships. Mrs. Kok’s students work with her to apply for college and external scholarships. She helps the student to know the difference in the scholarships, what must be included, and deadlines to be eligible. College scholarships are based mainly on grades.
External scholarships are typically based on a student’s resume and an essay.
