• Welcome to our Scholarship page

    Searching for scholarships is a time consuming process.  The good news is that there are thousands of scholarships out there for you to help pay for college, the bad news is that there are thousands of scholarships out there for you to sort through. Start your scholarship search early!
     
     
    Use caution in paying a fee for organizations to search for scholarships for you, they are using the same resources you have available and do not guarantee that you will receive a scholarship.  Applying for a legitimate scholarship should not have any fees attached. 
     
    BHS Community Scholarships
    The BHS Community Scholarship list will be available in March.  To be eligible for the many scholarships available through the Blaine Community Scholarship Program, seniors must complete the online application during the stated time period and meet all qualifications for the scholarship. Once the scholarships are open, students can apply at: Blaine Community Scholarship Application
       
    BHS Community Scholarship information: BHS seniors are encouraged to apply for the Blaine Community Scholarship which opens in the Spring. This one application allows students to be considered for many scholarships offered by local organizations and businesses. ALL seniors going to ANY college next year are eligible.  The link to the ONLINE application is available from the BHS Counseling page (found under SUPPORT on the home page) or from the Naviance scholarship list. Stop in the BHS Counseling Office if you have questions. Students must log in to their AH Schools account to access the form. Be sure to note the application deadline!

    Connections
    Many scholarships are offered by employers, unions, professional organizations, and membership in clubs and community groups.  Be sure to research these options.  Ask parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles . . . if they are aware of any scholarships offered through organizations they participate in.
     
    Print Resources
    Some students prefer to use print resources rather than search electronically.  The public library or bookstores have books that list scholarships by various categories.  Titles include Peterson's Scholarships, Grants, and Prizes, College Board's Scholarships Handbook, and the Ultimate Scholarship Book.  These titles are updated each year.
