, AUGUST 14, 19(53 ALTON EVENING fELEGtUMt BVNKER HILL HIGH SCHOOL -Bunker Mill's MOW high school is still classes when school opens Aug. 30, ft long way from completion but is ex- Mason Holmes, district superintendent, pectert to bo used In part for elementary has announced. Students Look Ahead College Scholarships Continue Available: Now Is the Time College scholarships, while not waiting to bo picked up by anyone, are available, and now is the time Tor Alton area students, especially high school juniors and seniors, to begin thinking about them. This is the advice from I h c guidance and counseling department of the Alton school system, and the same recommendations apply for students in other area school districts. "It is not completely true that many scholarships are going begging throughout the country for want of applicants," said Dean Taylor, director of counseling and guidance for the Alton schools. "However, many are available for qualified students, and the number is increasing every year. Our oflice is eager to discuss with students and parents the scholarship situation as it can be applied in different cases." Ucirln In Junior Year Gathering of information on scholarships should begin not later than the junior year, Taylor said. Then students will be in a position to know their qualifications, the requirements and other information that will enable them to save time when the day comes to apply for college admission and scholarships. A scholarship in general means some kind of financial assistance to be applied to the cost of college education, Taylor explained, with scholastic achievement in high school usually the principal factor. They range In amounts up to $3,000, he said, but the usual scholarship is in the $300 to $400 bracket. The majority pay tuition only, Taylor added, but some are supplemented with cash awards or student loans. Requirements to qualify for most scholarships, Taylor said, include a strong academic background, a rank at least in the upper half of the class, good test scores, financial need, balanced participation in school activities and recommendation from counselors or other school personnel. A sizeable school aid program is administered by the Illinois Slate Scholarship .Commission, Taylor said. "Some 1,500 honorary and 1,500 monetary awards will be given in the state this school year," he said. "Those who qualify in the competitive exams are eligible for up to $KOO tuition credit at any approved institution of learning in Illinois." Aid, Awards, Student Loans Other sources of financial help available to college students, Taylor said, include grants in aid, awards and student loans. Many colleges are adopting a federally supported program which allows a student to borrow money and repay it after he leaves school, "a kind of learn now, pay later program," said Taylor. Parents can help a child in preparing for scholarship assistance, Taylor said, by being "interested and concerned without being over-demanding or over-anxious." "Talk with school personnel," he advised parents. "They will be glad to give you a professional opinion as to your child's indicated abilities as measured from past performances, test scores, observations of interest, aptitude and other qualities for success in school. "Each child should be judged solely as an individual, and not on what older or younger brothers and sisters did or did not do.' Don't Be Discouraged The intense competition and odds need not discourage the student who displays persistence, Taylor said. More scholarship aid is available for the above average student, he said, but the competition among these students is also greater. "This means that relatively fe\\ students with real ability need be denied an opportunity for advanced education because of finances," Taylor said. "Students somewhere will be getting these opportunities. It certainly is worth a try, for nothing ventured, nothing gained."
