On this page you will find information that pertains to scholarships.
The common scholarship application consist of the actual common scholarship application, activity sheet (resume), an academic transcript, a personal statement (no more than 2 typed pages, double spaced) and three (3) letters of recommendations (two from staff members and one from a community member). It is our belief that utilizing a common scholarship application will encourage more of our students to apply to a variety of local scholarships. It allows our students to fill out one application, which can be duplicated, for scholarships whose criteria they meet. It also exposes them to resume writing, a skill that is highly important. The letters of recommendation will support each candidate’s strengths from staff and community viewpoints.
