• Financial Aid and Scholarship Information for Juniors
    There are not as many financial aid and scholarship opportunities for Juniors as there are for seniors, but your junior year is a great time to start looking for scholarships to apply for and educating yourself on the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). 

    Reputable Scholarship Search websites:

    I recommend that students apply for as many scholarships as they qualify for. Keep in mind that you will have a better chance of obtaining local or school-specific scholarships than you will have to obtain a scholarship that is available to students nationwide.  Someone has to win each scholarship though, so it is never a bad idea to apply for a reputable scholarship.

    Local Scholarship Information:
    Sedgwick High School has several local scholarships available to seniors. The applications become available for students to complete around March each school year.  Make sure you visit the Senior Google Classroom often during the second semester of your senior year so you do not miss opportunities to apply for the following scholarships:
    • Hicks-Davison American Legion Post #268 Scholarships
      • These scholarships have 1 application and an interview that takes place a few weeks before awards night in May each school year. 
      • There are several scholarships available.
    • The Seeds of Opportunity Scholarship
      • This scholarship can be applied for on the Central Kansas Community Foundation website each year.

    FAFSA Information: 
    The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is mandatory for all US students who want to be considered for financial aid. Most educational institutions use the FAFSA to access a students eligibility for grants, loans, and work-study programs.
