Hello, members of the Class of 2023!

Many local organizations run their scholarship program through FFHS. Details for those are listed and submitted through our Scholarship Application Materials page. (That page will go live on Feb. 6. Info currently showing there is for LAST YEAR'S scholarships.) Other local organizations run their scholarship program through the Outer Banks Community Foundation. That info is included farther down the page, and those awards will be submitted through the OBCF website. Colleges and other nationwide programs have their own scholarship programs that you can learn more about through your college financial aid office/website and elsewhere online.
