Scholarship Counselor – Ms. Calderon-Magbuhat


Interested in $ for college?  Apply for scholarships!  There is a lot of money handed out each year in scholarships; however, you must apply.

Scholarships will be posted :

1) Our school website:  

 Go to our official site and click on “students”. Scroll down and click on “Counseling Center”.  Scroll down and click on “Scholarships”.

2) Jupiter Ed Email – Scholarships will be posted as we receive them (sometimes daily)



What can you do now to prepare for Scholarships as they are posted during the 2019-2020 school year?

1) Request two –three letters of recommendation from people who know you well (not relatives).  Maybe a teacher, counselor, or an employer.  Always give these people at least a two week notice and prepare a resume for them so they know what activities you’re involved in.

2) Request at least 2 official transcripts from our school registrar, Graciela Palomino.

3) Submit as many community service hours possible to your social science teacher.  Some scholarships may want students to have a good amount of community service hours, not only the 30 hours required to graduate.

4) Check our school website, Bonita Vista Counselors Facebook (@BVHcounselors), or Instagram (bvh_counselors) and review all scholarships posted.  Some of the scholarships have certain requirements that you must meet (such as GPA) in order to apply.
