Important Deadline Information:
Many of these scholarships may require counselor signatures, teacher/counselor letters of recommendation, information from us on class rank, GPA, etc.Just as we do for transcript requests, we teachers/counselors ask that you give us two weeks to be able to complete this information...especially at this busy time of the school year. If any of your scholarships require information of any kind from us at school, please have the completed application to us two weeks prior to the listed deadlines for the scholarships. If they are scholarships where you have to send out/e-mail/fax the completed application by a particular date, you will want to have that request for information in earlier than the two weeks due to you having to get it back from us and sent out/received by the posted deadlines. Thank You!
