There are several scholarships now posted on our website. I am adding new ones daily, so be sure to check the site often. Please be aware of deadlines and criteria for individual scholarships as they each vary. Pay close attention to the daily announcements and read your student email for updates. Other reputable scholarship search resources include, but are not limited to:
The LOCAL Scholarship Application: will be posted in the Counselors Corner in the next few days. In addition to the application itself, it will need to have the following items attached/uploaded to be considered complete, and all documents must be typed, saved, printed, and emailed to me (preferably shared in Google docs):
This is everything your scholarship committee needs to know about you that is not listed on your official high school transcript. Here is a good resource that will come in handy if you still need to create one: https://collegemapper.com/resume-builder/
Your essay topic and criteria will depend on the specific local scholarship that you are applying for.
Letters of Recommendation
You will need three letters of recommendation from Kelly Faculty/Staff/Coaches/Sponsors.
Now is a good time to request these.
I hope you find this information helpful. Feel free to email me if you have any questions or concerns about scholarships. I will be hosting scholarship help sessions during Advisory in the Library Computer Lab next week. For those who attend CTC in the afternoon and need help in the morning, just let me know so we can arrange for a time that is best. Enjoy your extended weekend. Do something to rest, rejuvenate, and stay (or get) healthy!
