GoingMerry is a scholarship search engine that is easy to use and similar to the college common application. Students build their profile by inputing their information and are matched to scholarships based on they information they provide. Scholarships include those at the national, local, and school-specific levels. Once students are matched to scholarships, they can begin to complete additional aspects of the application. GoingMerry will provide information such as how long the application is estimated to take allowing students to better prioritize how they are spending their time while filling out applications.
During the 2017-18 school year, NCSSM Counseling Services partnered with faculty and staff to create the Resiliency Project. This initiative showcases the tremendous growth and strength that can come from moments of difficulty throughout our lives, whether academic or personal in nature.
