For Seniors: Financial Aid and Local Scholarship Applications Now Available

Kathy Sabet, Newton South’s College and Career Counselor, would like to remind senior parents to complete the Free Application For Student Aid (FAFSA) if your child has upcoming college deadlines.  With new changes to the FAFSA process, you will submit your 2015 tax information which should expedite the process.  Check out the video , How to Fill Out the FAFSA.

Also, there are a number of scholarships available to Newton South students who are applying or accepted to college or university.  Typically, the amounts are from $500 to $5,000 per student with the majority of the awards in the $1,000 range.  Any student who has attended and graduated from Newton South is eligible to apply.  Students must submit an application and a non-NSHS faculty reference by Friday, February 10th.   Click here for more information and a link to the scholarship application.
