Scholarship FAQ's

Q:        Does your website have all of the scholarships that are available to LHS students?

A:         No.  There are literally thousands of scholarships available and the information we give you here is a good starting point.   Contact the scholarship office of the colleges you are interested in, visit the LHS Career Center, click through the links here, even Google can give you some great resources!  Remember that scholarships will not come looking for you, you have to put in the work to find the ones that are a good fit for you.  And always look out for the red flags listed here that tell you that an “opportunity” is too good to be true.

Q:        Does my high school counselor decide who gets a scholarship?

A:         No.  Your counselors are a wonderful resource to help you know what scholarships might be a good fit for you, and they will write you letters of recommendation when needed, but they do not award scholarships.  Each college has their own office to determine which students are awarded scholarships and then they will inform you by mail or email.

Q:        How high does my GPA have to be to get a scholarship?

A:         This depends on the college that you plan to attend.  Smaller, open-admission schools will often have lower requirements for their scholarships, where larger, more competitive schools will be higher.  Look at the college’s website; they will often have a table there that will show you what you can expect, or call their scholarship office.

Q:        If my GPA isn’t high, are there scholarships I can still apply for?

A:         Different scholarships are awarded based on a lot of different criteria.  Academic scholarships look at a combination of GPA and ACT/SAT scores but there are a lot of other potential scholarships that might work for you and are based on things like extracurricular activities, athletics, clubs, community service or leadership experience.  Find these by visiting the website of the college you plan to attend.

Q:        Can I apply for more than one scholarship?

A:         Most of the time, yes, you will be able to receive a combination of multiple scholarships as well as financial aid.   Every scholarship is different, though, so be sure to read the instructions when you are applying.  Every college is different, too, so if you have any doubt, check with the scholarship office at the college you are applying to.

Q:        What if I receive scholarship offers from more than one college?

A:         That’s awesome – congrats!  Make certain that you follow the directions to accept your scholarship award.  If you fail to accept it, or miss the deadline, you could lose that money.  Once you’ve made your final decision about where you are going to go, contact the other colleges and decline that scholarship money so that it can be made available to other applicants.

Q:        If I want to attend a college or university outside of Utah, what should I do?

A:         The first step is always to visit the website of the college or university you are interested in.  Remember that it is ultimately up to you to make sure that you know what your college’s deadlines are and what you need to do to apply. .  The Career Center is available to help you with whatever your post high plans are and would be happy to help you research those opportunities no matter where they are, so don’t hesitate to ask for help.
