CLAWS Update 2016-17  Application & Directions

Thank you for your interest in the Cambridge CLAWS program for 2016-2017.  We are looking for students who are well-rounded and active in school and/or their community.  Current sophomores and juniors may apply. Being a student mentor is a great way to positively impact the culture at Cambridge. Applications are due by 4pm on Friday, February 26, 2016.

 
PAWS Change Request

Please use the link above to request a PAWS change. Academic requests are given first priority. All other requests are based on availability. Continue to follow your current PAWS schedule until you receive an updated schedule. Making multiple (duplicate) requests slows the process. If your request cannot be accommodated, you will be notified using the email address that you provide on the form.

Juniors & Seniors - So what is the Work-Based Learning Program all about? Need a job - see Mrs. Campbell's Job Board.  Get class credit while working on or off campus. WBL Applications - Return completed applications to RM2445.

Please check with your colleges to see the deadline to submit the completed FAFSA. 
  
All male students age 17 ½ years and older are required to register with Selective Services by their 18th birthday to be eligible to receive any aid including HOPE funds. Please visit www.sss.gov to register.
