Many scholarships require ACT and/or SAT scores. Students are advised to take these tests beginning the second semester of their junior year. Although many scholarships are based on grades and test scores, many are also based on other criteria such as character, extra-curricular activities, volunteer work, overcoming adversity and financial need.  

It is important to note that scholarships are designed for many types of career interests and GPAs vary. 

Tips for Winning Scholarships 

  • Please do not wait until May of your senior year to start applying for scholarships. Start checking now! 

  • Choose references that will say good things about you and give them at least two to three weeks to write a letter of recommendation for you. Brag sheets are provided during your Senior meeting with Mrs. Steig. 

  • Transcripts can be requested through Parchment and are free of charge. If you need a hard copy of your transcript, please email Mrs. Steig at 

  • Be very neat and follow directions. When possible, always type unless applications request handwriting. 

  • Follow deadlines. Applications submitted after deadlines (dates and/or times) will not be accepted.
