February 2019 Scholarship Notes

The list of scholarship descriptions is linked above and calendars reflecting the application due dates are linked below. Cross-reference the scholarships you are eligible to apply for with the due dates on the calendars as they are linked. If school is cancelled, scholarships due on cancelled day will become due on next day school is in session. Remaining due dates do not shift. 

You will notice the pace is definitely picking up. 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 affected 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 online. The process should be user-friendly, but if you run into difficulty, please let me know. 

PLEASE NOTE – 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 online, 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 with you.
