Not sure where to start or what you should be working on?
1) FAFSA - most schools/scholarships require it
2) College admission applications - most will include their own scholarship applications
3) Oregon Promise if attending community college and have a 2.5gpa minimum
4) Scholarships: OSAC, Ford Family Scholars application, selected college scholarship applications, the MHS Local Scholarship application (coming next week, but essays have been posted that you can start on)
There will be a scholarship list in the google classroom college bound class of 2021.  You can also do individual searches, but I always encourage students to find more local (state or region) scholarships first as there is a smaller application pool.
