Accepted to Johnson and Wales University!

I've been on this site for a little while, mostly getting tips of my dinners. I mentioned before that I was planning on going to Johnson and wales University to study culinary arts. Yesterday I got my letter of acceptance!! It's very exciting for a young chef like myself to be accepted.
The only issue I have is with getting money, anyone know of any good scholarships I could get?

Congrats! You'll have a great time, no doubt.

You could as J&W about available scholarships and also search online.

Have you applied for financial aid? Have you spoken to their financial aid office? have you filled out FAFSA? Those are places to start.

Have you talked to their financial aid office? they can give you information on other scholarships. When do you start? If it's before next fall, you probably would use last year's tax info (2008). I know that was true for me with starting in the summer. Their office should be able to answer your questions.

Go to the JWU website and check out the Financial Aid section (link) and read it - and follow their instructions. You will have to fill out a FAFSA before you can be considered for any financial aid or scholarships at any College/University that I know of.

DO pay attention to the instructions for filling out the forms, DO make sure they are complete, DO supply any supporting documentation they ask for, and DO pay attention to the filing dates - those who file earliest have a better chance than those who put things off and file at the last minute.

The Financial Aid office has a more complete set of up-to-date information on loans, grants and scholarships available to JWU students than anybody here.

Good luck!

Congrats on getting into J&W. I attended J&W at the Charleston, SC Campus and it is a great school.
