Scholarship Categories

(What you need to know!)     


Students are welcome to use computers in the College & Career Center  to complete scholarship applications before or after school, during lunch, or during an open block.  


University Scholarships:  

These are merit-based scholarships awarded by the college or university to which a student has been admitted. Sometimes these scholarships are awarded automatically based on the student’s college admissions application. The student is then notified about scholarship(s) received in his/her college financial aid package. Other times there may be a separate scholarship application and/or competition, especially for top institutional awards. Additionally, if a student is applying for admittance to a specific department (such as music) there is commonly a separate scholarship application and/or audition or additional materials required for departmental scholarship consideration. Students should be sure to check the financial aid webpage of the college or university they plan to attend to make sure they do not miss a scholarship opportunity.

NMHS Foundation Scholarships: 

Each year approximately fifty local benefactors award more than a hundred scholarships through the NMHS Foundation. Students complete one application. The NMHS Foundation Committee then reviews applications, matches applications with possible corresponding benefactors, and facilitates the awarding of scholarships through the NMHS College & Career Center.  


The scholarship application is made available to students near the end of second quarter and is due the middle of February. Students are notified of awards in late May. Students will access and complete the application online and then submit via email to: Go to: "NMHS Foundation Scholarships"  


Oregon Student Assistance Commission (OSAC) Scholarships: 

“OSAC partners with private donors, employers, foundations, and organizations throughout the state to administer more than 450 scholarships that students can apply for with one common application.” These scholarships are for students who are Oregon residents, though it is not necessarily a requirement that students attend an Oregon college or university as scholarship qualifications vary widely. It is important that students begin the OSAC scholarship application as soon as it is available, as it is quite comprehensive. It is also beneficial to submit the application before the early-bird deadline instead of the regular deadline. Students who submit their applications before the early-bird deadline are given the opportunity to fix mistakes or address irregularities if they occur.

Individual Scholarships (Local – Nation-wide): 

There are hundreds, thousands, maybe hundreds of thousands of individual scholarships sponsored by foundations, corporations, individuals, and other organizations. Some of these scholarships are local scholarships provided by individuals or organizations in a student’s own “backyard.” Some of these scholarships may be provided by national, widely recognized corporations or organizations. The NMHS College & Career Center posts information and access links to some of the more recognized scholarships. Students should frequently check the CCC website for possible scholarship opportunities and deadlines.

Go to: "Individual Scholarships"


Something to remember when applying for individual scholarships is that the easier it is to apply and the more money that is offered often equals a correspondingly less chance of getting the scholarship. Also, there is usually a better chance of getting a scholarship offered within a student’s own community than a random nation-wide scholarship for which thousands of students apply.  It is up to each student to evaluate the work/reward ratio and decide which scholarships are worth the effort. 


Scholarship Search: 

Another way to find individual scholarships for which a student may be eligible is to register with a free scholarship search engine (such as FastWeb or Scholarships.Com). These search engines build a scholarship portfolio tailored to the student based on the personal information the student provides.


Go to: "Financial Aid" for more scholarship search engines and financial aid information.
