The following information on this website represents a comprehensive list of scholarships provided to Dysart School District counselors. None of the scholarships are provided by or are affiliated in any way with the Dysart Unified School District.

There are scholarships that target students of every type and talent. Depending on academics, talent, commitment, involvement, ethnicity, financial need, and/or life events, students have a chance of receiving scholarship money.

Research is the key word when discussing scholarships. Students must take the time to do research if they plan on receiving money. Parents, teachers, and counselors can direct students to the proper places for research; however, they cannot do the research and work for you. District counselors advise students to begin their research as early as Fall of your Junior year. While most scholarships are available to seniors, there are scholarships out there for students of all ages.

Students who are serious about researching scholarships typically can spend ten or more hours a week researching scholarships, sending away for applications, and writing essays.

For questions regarding scholarships, please contact your school counselor.
