local scholarships

The following scholarship/award list is updated to the best of our ability throughout the school year.  Availability, funding, eligibility requirements and due dates change from year to year and are available on the website and application links listed below. We have attempted to make this a bit more user-friendly by sorting into three categories: Local, State and National. The guidance office will also periodically place flyers in senior mailboxes and also utilize the TV message screen to alert students of upcoming deadlines.  Please remember, there is an abundance of money out there for the taking! A bit of work may result in monetary rewards!
