 MVHS Scholarship Applications

Most scholarships aren't due until mid spring, however you can start the application process now by getting your letters of recommendations and preparing your scholarship essay. Email Mrs. Butler if you need any assistance.

Students if you haven't already, create a gmail outside of school that you can use for all of your applications for college. That way you will have everything go to the same place and you will have access to it after you graduate.


College Bound students please start your account through Common Application here https://www.commonapp.org/
This is the easiest way to stay organized and keep all of your items in one place. Only four year schools use this app so if a school you want to apply to doesn't use Common App, then we can help you with their particular application.
Community colleges have their own applications which take about 15 minutes to complete, we can help if you need it:) 


Employment Bound students please be sure you have started resume and create an account through the Rockland Career Center here https://www.mainecareercenter.gov/locations/rockland.shtml
They have tons of resources and post all new jobs daily. They even have a career inventory tool if you are still trying to figure it all out.

Financial Aid  can be tricky, but is an absolute must.  Due to the current health crisis we are unable to provide an in person Financial Aid night as usual, however FAME (Finance Authority of Maine) who usually presents for us is offering several virtual meetings this month. Please go to their website here https://www.famemaine.com/ and look at upcoming events, register for the night that works best for you.  

You and your student can create an FSA ID now here https://fsaid.ed.gov/npas/index.htm  Both of you will need one before you can start the financial aid application on October 1st.    Please be sure to write down your passwords and special questions while you create this, it is very difficult to recover if you forget your password.


As always you can reach out to us if you have any questions or concerns please feel free to call, email or parent square message us.  We will be in touch soon!
