Search for scholarships over winter break

Winter break can be a great time to work on scholarship applications. Through the online Family Connections tool, Wilsonville High School students can access a database of scholarships available to WHS students. From the school website, click the “For Students” tab and then click the “Family Connection” button in the list on the left side of the page.

Most of the scholarships listed there are for high school seniors, but some are available to younger students too. Scholarships are added to the database as they become available, so check in often.
