Scholarship Information

Welcome Students and Parents!

Thank you for visiting our scholarship page.  I will post information as it becomes available.  Consider the following as you prepare your applications.  

  • Think of an unrelated adult who may be willing to write you a Letter of Recommendation.  This could be a teacher, coach, counselor, boss, clergy member etc.  Generally allow three weeks for the adult to prepare the letter.  Many scholarships ask for this, so make copies.
  • Start working on a personal essay.  Have a basic draft that you can tailor to a particular theme.  Common topics include: why you've chosen a particular major/career, a time when you've overcome adversity, describing your community service background, a person who has influenced your life.
  • Come to school!  Some scholarship have attendance requirements.
  • File your FAFSA.  Need based scholarships may require information from your FAFSA.
  • Read applications carefully.  Pay close attention to deadlines, attach all required items and do not leave any section blank.
  • Sign up for updates and reminders from Mrs. Baker
