North Marion High School held a Scholarship Week during the last week of January where all seniors had an opportunity to work on their Oregon Student Access Commission (OSAC) scholarship applications during Advisory period. "The counselors have been prepping the seniors for weeks about the OSAC scholarship and had a training for the senior advisors so they knew exactly what needed to be done," said Susie Snelling, the GEAR UP School Liasion who visited the event. “Before the week even started over 40 seniors had already completed the application and at the rate the other seniors were working at the end of the first day, many more will follow their lead.”
Seniors at Brookings-Harbor High School (and current college students) can get help with both their FAFSA and scholarship applications on Wednesday mornings in February at the Curry Country branch campus of Southwestern Oregon Community College. "[It] builds bridges with the college and helps students," said Gerry Livingston, Talent Search coordinator.
