Scholarship application

We have lots of excellent students who deserve scholarships. There are so many, deciding who gets the scholarships has become difficult. To make it more fair and impartial, we are asking students to fill out a short application form and include a resume. Please fill out the application in Adobe!! Be sure to download the sample resume in Word format. Both documents are needed to be considered for a scholarship.

The deadline for applications is the first Monday in April, that is April 7, 2014 by 4:30pm!! If the office is closed, please submit your application to Leigh Fall, Keith Brunstad, or Melissa Godek.
