STRICTLY SCHOLARSHIPS

Last updated March 20, 2019

The FAFSA is now available online, and every senior interested in any educational plan after high school should plan to complete it as soon as possible. Students and parents can create accounts at http://fsaid.ed.gov, and the FAFSA can be found at http://fafsa.gov.

This year, we will continue to simplify the local scholarship process by requiring only one application for most local scholarships; however, we have edited the application to be completed online via pdf.  Please read the following instructions very carefully to ensure you complete the application completely and correctly.

You are required to turn in a typed, signed, hard copy cover sheet and application, with all required attachments printed out as well. All materials are due to Ms. Robinson no later than Friday, March 22 at 4:00 PM.

Every senior planning to attend college in the fall will qualify for at least one of these local scholarships. (This does not mean you will be awarded the scholarship, just that you will meet the criteria to be considered.)

Instructions to view/edit the cover sheet and application:

  1. Click on the cover sheet link and application link.
  2. Click “Sign In” to log into your personal Gmail account.
  3. Go to “Open with” and click on “DocHub-View, Edit, & Sign PDFs”
