  • State & local governments
  • Businesses
  • Employers
  • Clubs
  • Associations
  • High schools
  • Civic Groups
  • Church & religious organizations
  •  Trade associations
  •  Labor unions
  •  Political parties
  • Military Associations
  • Private foundations
  •  Private charities
  • Ethnic organizations

Monthly scholarship lists are posted on the Scholarship Board in the Career Center and can be accessed on the Sheldon Schoolloop website through the provided links. Lists are continually updated.

Students can print out applications that are available online by going to the individual scholarship websites posted on the monthly lists, or request printed copies of scholarship applications in the Career Center.

Please note that new scholarship opportunities arrive every week.

Check the Scholarship Board in the Career Center or the school website on a regular basis to keep current on available scholarships.
