Scripps Scholarships

If you plan to apply to Scripps, it's important to apply early for the JES scholarships (the deadline last year was Nov 1). I had a friend who didn't know about these scholarships until too late to apply.

See, this early deadline puts you in the pool to compete for about 40 half-tuition and a 1 or 2 (I forget) full-ride scholarships at a really insanely fun weekend in the spring where Scripps pays for your air fare and hotel room. I went, and it was a blast, and though I decided not to go--I got the half-tuition scholarship, but Scripps still wasn't affordable--I really liked Scripps and loved getting flown down to SoCal and spending a weekend with a bunch of other high-school seniors. Also, these scholarships are the bulk of the merit aid the school offers. So make sure to apply early!
