Deadlines Approach for Many Scholarships

In FHN’s College and Career counselor,
Brooke Prestidge’s office, college pennants
hang all around the top portion of the room.
The pennants are from colleges that past
students have gone to and local colleges
in the FHN area. Prestidge helps students
decide what they want to do in their near
and far future.

Now is the time many seniors are looking to help find ways to fund college and there are a variety of scholarships out there to help. Scholarships are readily found on many websites. Brooke Prestidge, the College and Career counselor explains the various websites where scholarships are publicly available to students.
“I list scholarships on my canvas page, the FHN Class of 2022 and our district also has their own college and career website,” Prestidge said. ”The two main places I tell students to look for scholarships will be their college first that they’ve applied to, and then the local scholarship that we advertise either on canvas, the district website or my scholarship central.”
The canvas page is regularly updated as Prestidge is contacted by the scholarship providers. She also makes canvas announcements for each new scholarship provided to her so students are aware of them. If the canvas does not provide enough scholarship opportunities, a website recommended by Brooke Prestidge to find more scholarships is: https://myscholarshipcentral.org/
