ACT INFORMATION

I wanted to inform you that most colleges and universities give scholarships based on ACT scores and grade point averages (GPA).  For each scholarship, there is a certain ACT score with a minimum GPA required.  There are some colleges (Arkansas State University, University of Arkansas, and others) that will only award scholarships based on ACT scores taken through October of this year.  If you are planning on going to college and have not taken the ACT or have taken it and wanted to try to raise your ACT score, then you need to take it as soon as possible. The next opportunities for the ACT are September 11 with a registration deadline of August 6, October 23 with a registration deadline of September 17, and December 11 with a registration deadline of November 5.  ACT requires students to register online at www.actstudent.org.

ARKANSAS LOTTERY CHALLENGE SCHOLARSHIP

The Arkansas Lottery Challenge Scholarship is a scholarship that has helped many students tremendously over the last couple of years be able to attend college.  The law was CHANGED, students ONLY need to score a 19 on the ACT to be eligible. 

 

HONOR GRADUATES

Also, if you are planning on trying to be an Honor Graduate then I want to make sure you know the requirements for it to ensure you qualify.  Honor Graduate requirements are as follows:  4 years of English, 4 years of Math (one must be above Algebra II), 4 years of Science (one must be Chemistry), 4 years of Social Studies, a 3.5 GPA, and an ACT score of 19 in every area. You must also have either 2 years of the same foreign language and 2 AP classes that are in different areas, or 1 year of a foreign language and 3 AP classes that are in two different areas.

 

SCHOLARSHIPS

I just wanted to let you know how I will be doing a few things this year.  When I receive scholarships, I try to get the information out to the students in the following ways:  I have them announced on the morning bulletin, I have them posted on our website under scholarships or counselor’s corner, I sometimes type a list and hand out in the English classes, and I will tell you to look on the website when I have new ones.  We also have access on our website to Tasseltime, which has many resources some of which are scholarship search engines.  See Mrs. Dena for username and password.  The only suggestion that I have when using a scholarship search engine is never pay for it.  If you have to pay for it, then do not use it.

 

COLLEGE SCHOLARSHIP DEADLINES

If you need to know any deadlines for scholarships to any colleges, just ask.  I can find out for you.

 

COLLEGE APPLICATIONS

When you apply to any college, you will need to come by the counselor’s office and let us know so that we can send your transcript and shot record.  Please do not wait until the last minute to apply.

 

SCHOLARSHIPS YOU RECEIVE

When you receive a scholarship, we need you to bring us a copy of the scholarships so that we can keep a record of all scholarships.  Accept any scholarships that you receive because you can always turn them down later.

Guides and Tools

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, higher levels of education translate to higher employment rates and higher lifetime earnings. But for many students, both young and old, there are many obstacles that interfere with their higher education and career pursuits. Our research identified not having proper educational resources and/or the lack of financial funding as the most common factors. So we addressed these head-on in our recent guide so that students and families in your community can learn about their options and feel empowered to take advantage of the opportunities in front of them.

You can see our free collections of guides and tools here:

LendEDU Tools

In an effort to help students afford their higher education, our team at LendEDU recently updated our guide to college scholarships to help students find relevant opportunities to cut some of the costs of college.

Our resource teaches students and families the importance of searching for scholarships when figuring out how to pay for college: https://lendedu.com/blog/scholarships
