Scholarship Applications


Scholarships Updated Thursday, Sept 20th, 2017.

Seniors and Senior Parents, a little early for local scholarships, but for anyone eager to start, go to ScholarshipQuest which is located on the  EducationQuest.org  website listed below.  As soon as I have contacted the local scholarship committees for changes and assurance they will continue, I will begin to " OPEN " ,  then they should be ready to go.  Read the criteria, then click on the name of the scholarship to access the application.  If it says to see Mr Thiele, stop in and pick up a hard copy. 

Most scholarships are turned back into guidance office; on due date I send the file containing all applications to the specific committee that heads up that scholarship.

Check with the scholarships/financial aid department of the school you are looking at to determine what is available through them.

The FAFSA (Free Application For Federal Student Aid) can be filed any after October 1st using your 2016 taxes. Go to fafsa.gov.

You can check out available Nebraska scholarships under ScholarshipQuest at Educationquest.org.  Also while there you can search national websites such as 

Chadron, Wayne, and Peru State have scholarships listed under www.nscs.edu (go to students and scroll down.  Also check out the NSCS Advantage in same spot).

If your student is interested in UNK, UNO, or UNL, go to collegeboundnebraska.com to check out possible help to cover tuition.
