Local Scholarships

Note: some of these links still reference last year’s scholarships. Most requirements will remain the same, so you can begin preparing in advance. Continue checking back as they will be updated as deadlines get closer! Make your actual application on the current year forms.

Tips for Success:

  1. Always try to type your application. Try dochub or PDFMergy if necessary.
  2. Consider creating a cover letter to introduce yourself (and consider adding a photo so the committee can put a face to your name). 
  3. Consider including a full high school resume, even if the scholarship doesn’t require one. 

Good luck!
