Clarence High School

Together We Make Learning A Way Of Life

Keep in mind that when searching for scholarships, distinguishing between merit-based and non-merit-based will narrow your field, and provide more options to students who wish to receive aid for reasons other than academic performance. Students should listen to morning announcements for scholarship opportunities and deadlines.
And finally, there is Scholarships on Social Media @TFSscholarships on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.
