Want Scholarship Money?  Need Help?

Hello,  juniors and seniors!  I am Ms. Nelisha Gray,  and I work for an agency called the Illinois Student Assistance Commission (ISAC), which helps students prepare for college and find scholarships.  I will be revisiting Roanoke-Benson High School on Monday, March 16,  during lunch hour to help juniors and seniors with scholarships and college preparation.

 

I have a list of more than one hundred scholarships that students can apply for based on preferred major, ethnicity, veteran in family, sport participation, foster care, overcoming hardships, and more!  I am also able to answer questions about how to find the right college for you and the college experience.  Please take advantage of this wonderful opportunity and visit me.
