Scholarships for all grade levels!

To find and apply for scholarships for all grade levels, sign up for Going Merry (https://www.goingmerry.com) -- it’s free! Going Merry has thousands of national, regional, and local scholarships. There are also opportunities for every grade level, from freshmen to seniors.

To sign up, go to https://app.goingmerry.com/sign-up#students

You can also download the Going Merry mobile app (and sign up that way) on iOS or Android.

Here are some reasons why I recommend Going Merry above other scholarship sites:

  • Scholarship bundles: You can apply to multiple scholarships using one application and the same essay prompt.
  • Vetted scholarships: The Going Merry team personally reviews every scholarship listing on the site, to ensure the scholarship program is still active and the information is correct.
  • Personal matchingOnce signed up, you’ll answer a few questions to fill out a basic profile, and then get matched to scholarships that fit your background, academics, interests, etc.
  • Direct, auto-filled applications: You can apply to many scholarships directly on the site (with forms helpfully pre-filled).
  • Clear organization: You can shortlist favorites and get deadline reminders about them. All drafts and applications are saved, and you’ll get updates on the scholarships you’ve applied to.
College Board Opportunity Scholarships

The College Board is committing $25 million in scholarships over the next five years.

4,000 students each year earn scholarships ranging from $500 to $40,000.

Letters of Recommendation 
You MUST fill out a Brag Sheet (listed below) in order to get a letter of recommendation from someone. Brag Sheets are to be typed into and printed out/ emailed for each individual you are asking to write a letter. 
It shows them the details about your accomplishments that they might not know off the top of their head. Please list on the brag sheet all of the scholarships you are asking the person to recommend you for.  

LOCAL Scholarships

 Check Parent square for the most updated information weekly

Each year many local groups and organizations provide scholarships to Elsinore High School Seniors.  

There is no type of student that gets awarded a scholarship. It is a common myth that only the top students in the senior class get awarded scholarships. Many scholarships do not consider GPA. They want to hear your story and know who you are as a person. Some of them want to hear about your connection to EHS, community service you have done, or teams you have been a part of or work experience. Many of them want to know about what challenges you have had to overcome, or what you plan to pursue in college, and why.  

Please complete the following applications and turn them into Ms. Stacy as soon as possible. The earlier you submit your application the more scholarship opportunities you will be eligible for. 

*Do not worry as much about SAT and ACT and community service hours if you do not have them. But include them if you do have them. 

*Any counselor, Principal, or vice-principal, or Ms. Stacy, can fill out the counselor portion of any of the applications.  

ALL SCHOLARSHIPS MUST BE TYPED. Handwritten applications will not be accepted. You can use DocHub.com for free to edit PDF documents.  

Do not forget to fill out a brag sheet before asking for your letters of recommendation! 

Scholarships must have a cover page with a recent photo. Please see the example of a cover page attached.
