Prospective undergraduates should apply for all privately funded scholarships during the junior and/or senior year of high school. High school guidance counselors can provide information regarding application procedures. Many fraternal, industrial, community, and religious organizations sponsor scholarship and/or loan programs which should be investigated through the particular institution.
