Scholarships for Seniors

The Dean of Studies assists students in the scholarship application process by announcing local scholarships available and coordinating the availability of applications (paper & electronic applications).

The following list of local scholarships is based on scholarships provided in recent years.  The availability of scholarships is determined each year by scholarship providers.  Scholarship criteria will be announced in the monthly Senior Newsletter (link).

Students and parents may also conduct their own scholarship searches online.  There are many scholarships available on the regional and national-level for those willing to put the time and energy into the search and application process.  Students should never pay for a scholarship search or to apply for a scholarship.

The largest amount of scholarship monies awarded to Shawe graduates is usually from colleges and universities.  These merit-based or academic scholarships are most often granted to students who meet GPA and test score criteria.  Students should refer to the Admissions or Financial Aid section of college websites or contact the Office of Admission at their colleges of choice for details on scholarships available.
