Scholarship Application Process
1. Scholarship Deadlines- Please remember that students are responsible for obtaining and submitting scholarship applications to the scholarship organizations by their deadlines. Make sure to give others enough time to complete their portion of your application so that deadlines can be met.
2. Obtaining Scholarship Applications-Many of the above listed resources will direct you to a website to access their scholarship applications. If so, follow their directions to obtain the application. Others may direct you to the guidance office. If you are directed to the Guidance Office for the application, please ask our Guidance Secretary, Mrs. Cook, for assistance.
3. Requesting a Transcript- Not all scholarships require or want a transcript to be included. To be sure, look through your applications in their entirety. If they do request this information, please submit a completed, signed Transcript Request Form (available in the Guidance Office, provided in senior conferences, and available on our website) to the Guidance Office. If there are any forms that your counselor needs to complete for the application, be sure to attach those forms to your Transcript Request Form and allow a minimum of 10 school days for completion. Once completed, your transcript will be available for student pick-up in the Guidance Office on Mrs. Cook’s desk. You are responsible for mailing.
