Mrs. Nate’s Scholarship Newsletter

Scholarships and Other College Information 

  • Don't forget to research and then apply for colleges that you are interested in! Deadlines are before usually before December 1st.
  • Go to www.cokeville.com under the Counseling— at the bottom of the page is all the counseling and college/scholarship links. Tons of valuable information to help prepare for the next level of education.
  • Just a reminder about scholarships. Sometimes they can be a scam and you need to be aware and careful about that.  A good rule is “If they ask for you to send money or they guarantee you the scholarship” then it is probably a scam.
  • Boys – remember to register for selective service. After you register please print a copy for verification.
