Scholarship Information and Links:

Many private scholarships are available to help students pay for college. As a friend who is a financial advisor once told me, when it comes to outside scholarships students should "apply but don't rely." Many scholarships are highly competitive and offer a lot of money. However, some scholarships are less competitive and while some offer less money, a student willing to put in the time to apply broadly can be pleasantly surprised by the amount of money they can earn toward their college expenses. Here are some scholarship search sites:

La Jolla High students applying for need-based financial aid, should be aware of the scholarships offered through the La Jolla High Scholarship Foundation. More information and applications are available in the winter of senior year and can be found here:
