Scholarships at CMHS
Some scholarships have a school selection or nomination process. At Cox Mill High School, we have a common scholarship application that is required for these types of scholarships. The Cox Mill High School Scholarship Application can be completed online and turned in at any point during the school year, though the earlier you turn in the application, the more scholarships for which you can be considered. The first wave of scholarship nominations start in September each year.
With countless scholarships being offered nationwide, it is nearly impossible to advertise them all. However, with any scholarship opportunities that pass through our offices, we want to do our best to get the word out to students and parents. Below is a regularly updated database with scholarships offered by various colleges, universities and third-party organizations. Continue to check back or click "subscribe" on the scholarship database page to receive any updates. Most scholarships in the database linked below are for seniors, but there is also a brief list of Scholarships for Juniors.
Scholarships can be offered at multiple levels. Students are encouraged to start at home and identify scholarships at the local level. These can include scholarships offered thru employers (students, parents), community connections (places of worship, civic organizations, etc.) and other community sponsors. Local scholarship opportunities are usually less competitive since students will be competing against students from Cox Mill High School and/or Cabarrus County rather than against students across the region, state or nation.
Each fall, we will host a Scholarship Night so that students and parents/guardians can learn more about the scholarship research and application process. The links and handouts from this year's event (October 10, 2017 at 6:30 pm) are posted below. Links are live following the event and will be updated annually.

TIP: Set up an alternate email that you use only for these scholarship search engines. Visit that email weekly to screen your emails for scholarships that fit you and forward those emails to your real email address. This will prevent your real email from being loaded with spam once your scholarship search is concluded.
