Scholarships - GastonCountyScholarships.com
Welcome to GastonCountyScholarships.com! This page is the starting point for scholarship searches for students attending Gaston County Schools. We have partnered with the Going Merry scholarship website. This site has streamlined the process for scholarship applications for students. Students are encouraged to create an account. Going Merry will match you with national, state, and local scholarship opportunities based on your profile. You can complete many scholarship applications directly in the website. There are some scholarships that may link you to the scholarship application on a separate website.
Once a student creates an account on Going Merry, the student will receive matched scholarships and reminders about application deadlines. Students can see scholarships in a general list below. This list is also provided on each high school’s page. This information will replace the monthly scholarship newsletters.
If you find any problems with any of the scholarship links on this page, or if you have questions, please contact Dr. Ami Parker, Director of Counseling Services, at 704-810-8813 or by e-mail at email@example.com.

At this point, we do not have a specific date set, but use the registration information to make sure you are on the email list when event dates are finalized.
Here are some videos explaining financial aid terms and next steps in the financial aid process. You can access from the website or from Youtube.
