Good job so far Seniors! You have turned in 276 applications as of Friday, January 17! That's awesome! With that being said, please do not email me applications and attachments. There's no way I could keep up with this process if I had to print and compile all the applications. You need to take care of that part, which most of you have done. However, some were confused and have been emailing. I just wanted to clarify the process so others don't email. Thanks so much for your effort and don't hesitate to come in or email me questions if you're not sure about the process. 

Also, applications on the calendar for today, Friday, January 17 and Monday, January 20 are now due Tuesday, January 21 along with those listed on Tuesday.

Scholarship Notes
January / February 2020

Seniors are off to a great start! Scholarship due dates began Monday, January 13 and as of January 14, over 200 applications had been turned in. Good job Seniors! Keep up the good work. Please remember to ask me if you have any questions and/or let me know if an online application doesn't work correctly for you. The list of scholarship descriptions and calendars reflecting the application due dates are linked above. Cross reference the scholarships you are eligible to apply for with the due dates on the calendars as they are linked. 

Please note that changes do occur periodically; due dates change, scholarships are added, etc… I will do my best to post changes on the web site and make applications available a minimum of two weeks prior to effected scholarship’s due date. Check the site often for such changes. Our computer technology department has worked very hard to help us make the scholarship information and application process available on-line. The process should be user-friendly, but if you run into difficulty, please let me know. 

If a scholarship description states that the application is available from someone outside the district (a church pastor, 4-H leader, etc..), that application due date may not be on the calendar. If you are interested in applying for one of those scholarships, you should be contacting the organization or individual now. 

We still have some applications that will not be on the web for various reasons. Students should check with me if there is a scholarship application not available via the web site a minimum of two weeks prior to the scheduled due date. A paper application may be required or there may be a technical issue. I would like to be made aware of any problems with applications as quickly as possible and will do my best to correct them immediately. If the application is available on-line, the title within the description will link to the application. The description should indicate if a scholarship requires a paper application and where to obtain the application.    

Personal data sheets/resumes and current transcripts are required to be submitted with many of the applications. It is important that students keep their personal data sheet on their computer and update it as needed. They also need to keep a master copy of their transcript for the many applications which require a transcript.   

We encourage you to contact us whenever you have a question or need assistance. The more communication that you have with Ms. Mildfelt and me the more beneficial it could be to everyone concerned. Thank you for the opportunity to work you.
