2024 Scholarship Information

All scholarship applications are available online (Google Classroom) and at the link below as PDF's. You can open them in a program that allows you to edit PDFs and complete them or print them out and complete them by hand. Either is fine and the scholarship committees do not have a preference (as long as they can read your handwriting).

Please plan to return your completed applications to the Counseling Office (unless otherwise specified on the application) - please do not email your completed applications to your school counselor.

  • Continue to check Google Classroom, as additional applications may be added over the next month. We are lucky to work with a number of generous school and community organizations who continue to provide opportunities after the February 1 posting.
  • Unless otherwise specified*, all scholarship applications should be returned to the Counseling Office no later than 3 p.m. on Tuesday, March 12, 2024. Please note that applications will not be accepted after this deadline. *Some scholarships have their own due date or instructions for submission.
  • After March 12, 2024, the applications will be sent on to the individual scholarship committees. Winners will be notified in mid to late April and invited to Local Scholarship Awards Night on Thursday, May 2, 2024 at 6:30 p.m. in the auditorium.

Questions? Please reach out to Dr. Nelson Slagle.
