A scholarship is a monetary award given to a student who meets a certain criteria to pay for college or post-secondary education. The criteria vary by scholarship, but is usually based on GPA, SAT/ACT test scores, community involvement, area of study, personal essays/essay prompts, and financial need.

Valley High School counselors have worked hard to compile a list of scholarships. There are different types of scholarships such as; national, state, local, district, high school, and college specific. VHS counselors are here to help you apply for scholarships! We also love to hear when you are awarded scholarship money; that way we can brag about you! Please let your counselor know about any scholarhips that you are awarded! NOTE: We do not recommend that you pay for any scholarship search services.
