This page is dedicated to helping seniors research and apply for scholarships throughout the state and nation.
Let Mrs. Stacey Gadsden-Middleton in Guidance know as soon as you are offered any scholarships!!! Guidance MUST have a copy of your official scholarship notification. We need this information in order to add this information to the graduation program as well as for Awards Night!
APPLYING FOR SCHOLARSHIPS:
The Guidance Department will gladly assist you with
processing scholarship applications.
- Please note the criteria for the majority of scholarships has been determined by outside organizations and colleges.
- Usually, we must pre-date the scholarship deadline for processing; therefore, your deadline will be the deadline to submit the application to Guidance. It is the responsibility of the student to meet scholarship deadlines. Waiting until the last minute may disqualify you or can forfeit your chance to be considered for the scholarship if received past the deadline. THE GUIDANCE OFFICE NEEDS TIME TO PROCESS YOUR APPLICATION AND RETURN IT TO YOU TO MAIL.
