Scholarship and Financial Aid Information

Hello Seniors and Parents! Please make sure you are checking with the colleges you're applying to for their individual financial aid deadlines and application due dates.

A good idea, recommended by a college admissions counselor, is to get all application materials sent to your colleges by Halloween! A scary deadline, but very do-able for seniors! Seniors should be asking their selected individuals (teachers, coaches, etc.) for letters of recommendation and gathering a list of all their activities done throughout high school.

Fill out the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) starting October 1st. Video tutorials for filling out the FAFSA!

Local scholarships are coordinated mostly in the second semester of senior year. They will be added to the Google Drive folder as they are received. Mrs. Miller will also email the applications to students on their Belpre HS email accounts and post out to the Senior Counselor's Office Google Classroom.

Scholarships Academic Year 2020-2021

This page will be updated throughout the year. Check back often for the latest scholarship information!


November 1 is a common early decision deadline for applications.

December 1st and February 1st are common final decision, FAFSA, and institution scholarship deadlines. Please note that the FAFSA application opens October 1st! Visit http://www.fafsahelpoh.org/ for more! COVID-19 may also affect dates and deadlines with short notice, so be aware.

May 1 is a common "I’m definitely attending your institution and here’s my deposit $ deadline."

Many schools have application fees. Please talk to Mrs. Miller if you need a fee waiver! Many schools use their own or one on their application's website. 

Below are university-level deadlines for schools that Belpre High School seniors are typically interested in attending. Plan to complete your FAFSA, university application, and any scholarship forms the university requires by the deadlines they set! Some colleges will automatically consider you for institutional scholarships when you apply, and others will have a separate application. Make sure you check so you don't miss out on any funds!!!
