All scholarships (other than ‘Student Mails’) are due to the Counseling & Career Center.
No late scholarships will be accepted.
A completed scholarship application packet should be put together in a clear-covered folder (unless the scholarship states otherwise). All information should be typed. You may use photocopies of letters of recommendation and of your transcript in the packets. Put each packet together in the following order unless the scholarship states otherwise.
Page 1 - Cover Page (Name of scholarship & your name)
Page 2 - Scholarship Application
Page 3 – Goal Statement Essay (helpful hints available in the Counseling & Career Center)
Page 4 – Resume/Activity List (helpful hints available in the Counseling & Career Center)
Page 5 – Transcript
Page 6-8 - Three Letters of Recommendation (2 Staff & 1 Community Member)
Read scholarship descriptions carefully – you won’t qualify for all of them.
Check deadlines on the ‘Student Mails’ applications – make sure your application will arrive at the final destination before the deadline.
Follow the application instructions; read instructions again when putting the application together to be sure you have everything. Not doing so will cost you a scholarship.
Rotary Application – be sure to check which scholarship(s) you are applying for. They will throw it away if you don’t.
When asking for recommendation letters be polite and appreciative, these letters are very time consuming. Be sure to send a thank you.
Check in the Counseling & Career Center for report covers. Use one with a clear cover.
ALWAYS SAVE TO AT LEAST 1 BACKUP. You don’t want to be scrambling at the last minute to retype everything if your computer goes down.
