Online search sites for scholarships:

The topic of scholarships and financial aid can be overwhelming.  The Scholarship Tips page, below, gives you the basics.  The better acquainted that the student is with the resources of the The Cube then the better we can direct students to scholarship and financial aid resources specific to the individual student’s needs.  If you have questions or would like more information then please make an appointment with Mrs. Lerude.  To schedule an appointment email her at slerude@washoeschools.net or have the RHS student stop by The Cube to set up an appointment. 

Additionally, we have the following resources:

  • RHS Senior Bulletin: features scholarships that RHS students have had success with in the past. The Bulletins are updated monthly and are available in The Cube and in the student’s American Government class.
  • Scholarship Matching Sheet: Students can come to The Cube and fill out a scholarship matching sheet. While by no means a guarantee that we can match the student with scholarships it is a good starting point and a way for Mrs. Lerude to learn more about the student
  • Scholarship Database/Spreadsheet: We update a spreadsheet with scholarships that RHS students have had success with in the past. It is a quick reference guide that can be accessed, above. The majority of scholarships open late fall and into the spring.
