College Bound Scholarship
Why College Bound?
8th Graders Forms Need to be Submitted by June 30, 2014!

Is it not just for college – this is a scholarship that will pay for any educational or training costs that our students on free/reduced lunch may need after graduation.

For example – to be a mechanic or nursing assistant, training is required. Having this College Bound promise will pay for the training or education that your son or daughter would need to begin in the workplace. There is a list of technical and training programs, as well as colleges, available.

The application takes less than 10 minutes to complete.
