Welcome to the Kelliher School Financial Aid and Scholarships page!

College is a big step and can be intimidating, but financial help is available. Here you will find information about applying for federal student aid along with other available scholarships. As scholarships are sent our way to share with students, we will post them here.  Keep in mind this is only a small portion of scholarships that are available to students.  You will also want to use some of the search sites listed below to look for even more available scholarships.  Please see Mrs. Lundin with any questions you have.
