General Scholarship Application Guidelines

  • Scholarships are awarded for the academic year that will begin no earlier than May 31st following the application deadline.
  • Transcripts must cover your entire high school career to date and, if in college, must include all semesters for which grades have been awarded.  If you are applying for graduate school assistance, high school transcripts are not necessary.
  • Some scholarships require attendance at specified schools or at schools within specified areas or states.  Scholarships may also require enrollment within certain major fields of study.  You will not be considered for these scholarships unless your application clearly provides the necessary qualifying information.
  • Do not apply for scholarships for which you are not eligible.
