New Scholarship Resource

Hello Seniors and Senior Parents! 
This past Monday, at the AISA professional development day, I got to attend a meeting with counselors from many different AISA schools. At this meeting, I was able to receive a great new resource for scholarships. It is a 247 page word document containing verified scholarships, with links to each one's individual site. This is a great tool for finding scholarships you may have never heard of. 
To access this document, go to the "Scholarship Resources" tab on the left hand side of this page.
