Based on user comments, I will update this blog posting on a regular basis. A variety of research studies indicate that few high schools provide students with adequate college planning or scholarship research advice. It is an unfortunate reality that many high school counselors are simply responsible for far too many students to provide students with the necessary college planning and guidance. However, any high school should be able to provide the necessary links on its website to where students might go to identify the information on their own. After all, high schools have classes, computers, students, parents, and teachers—clearly enough human and technological resources to identify the websites and sources of information.

One such high school is Bismarck High School in Bismarck, North Dakota! This is a great website and a good place to begin your college scholarship research. Let me know how your high school stacks up.
