Scholarship Information

Scholarship opportunities will be posted as they become available throughout the year at the pages to the left (above on a mobilepicture of diploma and graduate hat device).

It is the student's responsibility to check these pages throughout the year, and to pick up or download the scholarship application and complete the forms as instructed.

There will be directions on the application with detailed instructions on how to complete and submit. Some applications are available in the counseling office from Mrs. Mifflin or Mrs. McCoy. 

STRATEGIES TO WINNING SCHOLARSHIPS

1. Make photocopies of the scholarship application before you fill it out. That way, if you make a mistake or want to change something, you can start over with a fresh copy.

2. Complete your application at least two weeks before the application deadline. This will give you enough time to proofread your application, correct any mistakes, and mail the application to arrive before the deadline. Remember, the earlier you submit your application, the better.

3. Request letters of recommendation and transcripts early. Then you will be sure to submit them on time with the application.

4. If you think a question on the application doesn't apply to you, write “not applicable” in the space provided. Do not leave any spaces blank.

5. When you answer questions about your parents' income, you should list figures from official documents. These include tax returns, lists of assets, investment statements, or similar documents. Make sure you supply correct information, because you must establish financial need in order to be eligible for many scholarships.

6. Let the scholarship organization know how to reach you. Provide your complete, permanent address and telephone number.

7. If you are unsure about how to answer any question on the application, contact the organization that is offering the scholarship.

8. Carefully proofread your entire application. Ask friends, teachers, or family members to proofread it as well.

9. Make a photocopy of the completed application before you put it in the mail. That way, if your application gets lost in the mail, you have a backup copy.

10. Don't forget to write thank-you letters to teachers or employers who helped you out during the application process.

11. Often times, information concerning college visits, the armed forces, or potential job opportunities are posted in the daily bulletin, can be found in the district newsletter, or might be seen on the school's website. Please call the counseling center if you have any questions or concerns.
