Answer: Financial Aid and Scholarships
Most scholarship money comes from the Colleges/Universities, please call their financial aid offices for more information.
All local, community-based, and North County scholarships are posted on the Family Connections website.
Please either visit the link to the right OR go to http://connection.naviance.com/northcountyhs
Sign in using your student’s login (email address) and password (student’s id number).
Scholarships are listed under the “College” tab, at the bottom of the screen under “scholarships & money”, then click on “scholarships list”.
Please use the categories as much as possible. The scholarship info will note if the scholarship is available to download, in the counseling office “file” or if you go to the website to apply/download their application.
One scholarship that all seniors can do is the “Local Scholarship”. Make sure you return it to Miss Singer in the Counseling Office before the deadline.

1. The more scholarships you apply for, the better your odds of being awarded money.
