    The list of local scholarships has moved to SchooLinks: Click the "Finances" tab and then "Scholarship Matching." Please check back often for new scholarships. Most local scholarships (LPEF, local PTOs, etc). become available second semester, but outside scholarships have various deadlines throughout the year. 

    Going Merry
    Students are also encouraged to create a Going Merry account. This site can be used as a scholarship search/matching service (similar to those listed below). In addition, this website will be used for students to apply for the Lake Park Educational Foundation scholarships. Students should fill out their profiles as completely as possible to be matched with the greatest number of eligible scholarships.

    College Specific Scholarships
    Many colleges consider students for automatic, merit-based scholarships based on their application for admission. These types of scholarships do not require a separate application. However, colleges may have additional scholarship opportunities that require separate applications. To search for scholarships that are specific to a particular college or university, review the college or university's website, check your student portal after applying for admission, contact the Admissions or Financial Aid Offices to inquire, and check your email for invitations to apply for additional scholarships.
