                                                      be worth it when you don’t have to use your

                                                      yeah...your parents will love the idea of not

you are a fit for the scholarship. ​DO YOUR RESEARCH!

Please review this document carefully.​ We have provided you with scholarship links and deadlines.
Make sure to pay attention to the deadlines and give yourself enough time to thoroughly fill out the
application.

A quick tip,​ DO NOT ​pay to apply for a scholarship. No organization should charge you just to apply.
That is not FREE money, now is it? Please remember that if the scholarship application asks you to
pay any money, it is not for you!

If you have any questions, please contact Mrs. Karen Parker by phone at 760-291-2545 or by email at
kparker1@euhsd.org​.

    *If a listing has a​ STRIKETHROUGH,​ it means it is past the deadline or no longer available.

Bienvenidos al Centro de Becas 2018-19
                                          ¿Quiere dinero para la universidad? ¿Quiere dinero ​gratuito
                                               para la universidad? ¡Esta en el lugar correcto! El
                                              departamento de Consejería les a proveído una lista
                                             completa de recursos para becas. Tal vez encuentre el
                                           proceso de aplicar por becas requiere mucho tiempo, pero
                                          va valer la pena cuando no tengas que usar tu propio dinero
                                           para pagar para la universidad, o el dinero de tus padres.
                                             Si…a tus padres les va encantar la idea de no tener que
                                           pagar para que tu vaya a la universidad. ¡Entonces haz el
                                                            esfuerzo y gana las becas!

                                           Simplemente hemos reunido los links y detalles para becas
   que nos han mandado, y ahora les estamos proveyendo esta información en un lugar. Parte del
proceso de aplicar por becas es hacer la investigación y asegurar que califiquen por los requisitos para
                                     cada beca. ​¡INVESTIGUEN!

 Favor de revisar este documento cuidadosamente.​ Les estamos proveyendo link y fecha de entrega
para cada beca. Aseguren de poner atención a cada fecha de entrega para darse bastante tiempo para
                                      completar la solicitud.

Un consejo, ​NO​ paguen para aplicar a una beca. No deberían cobrar la organización por solo aplicar.
Entonces no seria dinero gratuito, ¿verdad? Por favor consideren que, si una aplicación les pide pagar
                             por aplicar, ¡esta beca no es para ustedes!

    Si tiene preguntas, favor de comunicarse con Sra. Karen Parker al 760-291-2545 o por correo
                                  electrónico al ​kparker1@euhsd.org​.

  *Si es que una beca esta TACHADA, significa que ya ha pasado la fecha de entrega o ya no esta
                                           disponible

Weird Scholarships:​Scholarships are abundant for exceptional athletes, exceptional students and
those with proven leadership skills. What about average students? Minority students? Students with
talents not as much in-demand?
If you fall into some of the latter categories, you may have been out of luck at one time. But today
there are many scholarships for average students, minorities and those with other talents. In fact,
there are some just plain weird scholarships that can help you pay for college, just like those
scholarships awarded to athletes and over-achievers.
