• Scholarship Tips

    Below is a list of potential scholarship opportunities for you to explore.  Please understand that this is not an exaustive list.  There are many places to search for scholarships.  We have heard it said that the one who applies for the most scholarships recieves the most scholarships.  REMEMBER: NEVER PAY FOR A SCHOLARSHIP SEARCH!  So where can you look?  See my list below for some considerations. 

    • South Florence, West Florence, Wilson High Schools Guidance Pages
    • SCOIS.NET- (Each F1S student should have a username and password to save scholarship searches. See your school counselor or career specialist for more information.)
    • Commision on Higher Education website for information about state scholarships www.che.sc.gov
    • Salliemae.com- be aware that this is a third party vendor not associated with F1S and FCC.  Neither is F1S endorsing this site nor encouraging loans through this entity, this will be at your discresion.  But they have a great scholarship search page for free! https://www.salliemae.com/college-planning/college-scholarships/

    2021-2022 Scholarship list 

    Tip: Students, If a scholarship asks for your social security number or a copy of your birth certificate and social security card or payment information.. STOP!!!  Speak to a school counselor before proceeding in order to verify the legitimacy of the scholarship.   There are fraud scholarships out there and people who want to steal your identity.  Make sure you are taking necessary precautions to stay safe.
