 Scholarship Information

Please review the Scholarship Booklet list of scholarships that are available to you.  

Please do not procrastinate . . . if you work on your choice of scholarships in advance of the deadline dates you will have the best chance of getting them in on time.  Scholarship resource people will not consider your application if it is late.

IT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY to read the lists and get the application forms.  Many of these are now required to be done online.

Some donors ask that we include your transcript with the application.  Please DO NOT WAIT UNTIL THE LAST MINUTE to make transcript requests from the Guidance Office.

Every student going to college, vocational school or any other post-secondary school should fill out the LOCAL SCHOLARSHIP APPLICATION and return it to the Guidance Office before April 15th of each year.

The asterisk (*) denotes local scholarships.  The Deer Isle-Stonington High School Scholarship Committee decides some of the local scholarships and the scholarship donors decide some.

As we become aware of new scholarships, an updated list will be emailed home to every senior.

Many colleges offer their own scholarships.  Remember to check with the financial aid office at the college of your choice.

College Scorecard provides information put out by US Department of Education. A good quick search tool to look at different colleges and find key information.

The Common Application is an efficient way to keep track application process. Most schools use the Common App and it will save a great deal of time and effort as you apply to schools.

This College Board will provide you with college information and test registrations dates and deadlines. It also provides some options for test preparation.

This is the site you will use to apply for Student Aid. I will be looking to get someone from FAME out on the island to help students complete their FAFSA application as a group.

This site provides information on different occupations and breaks it down by state. If reviews job outlooks, wages, educations, and trends.
