There is no single criterion used in selecting scholarship recipients. The selection committee reviews the applicant’s academic achievement, test scores, extra-curricular activities, financial need, written application and counselor comments in its selection process. For one scholarship financial need is more heavily weighted. Applicants should have an ACT score of 24 or higher.
Scholarships will range from $1,000 - $2,000.
The application form consists of a Letter of Instruction and three (3) pages of Application. Pages one and two must be completed by the student applicant. Page three should be completed by the principal or guidance counselor. It is very important that the students' ACT and/or SAT scores are included with the application and the student must have an ACT score of 24 or higher. Please indicate if the student is not taking these exams. The comments of the student candidate's guidance counselor and letter of recommendation are extremely important in the selection process.
