NEW SCHOLARSHIP HUB!

 

Scholarship Hub is a new, local resource for high school seniors to locate scholarships. This central site includes some of the same financial assistance opportunities found on your high school guidance departments’ pages but can be searched by criteria, such as career, college major, GPA, and extracurricular activities.

Scholarship Hub is updated on a regular basis during the school year. Please visit frequently for the most current list of scholarships. The school division will make every effort to ensure that Scholarship Hub is accurate.

Guidance department sites will have other scholarships listed that are linked to specific colleges and universities, and other focused awards.

 

Check out the Scholarship Hub for the latest listings or stop by the KFHS Guidance Office!
