SCHOLARSHIP APPLICATIONS

2020-2021 Scholarships

 

This is not a complete listing of all scholarships available, but it lists many scholarships at the local, state, and national level on which we have received information. Please pay attention to the submission deadlines. If a deadline does not list the current year, that indicates we have not yet received updated information on that scholarship. If you want more general information about scholarships, check out the “Scholarship Information” page.

 

If a scholarship does not have an address for submission, it should be dropped off in the School Counseling Office.

 

Local scholarships are denoted with a double asterisk (**). As these scholarships are offered on a local basis, they are likely to have fewer applicants than those offered on the state and national levels.

 

Amounts followed by an asterisk(*) indicate expected amount based upon previous year, but may change as scholarships are finalized for the year.
