Local scholarships can be a good way to gain a little extra money for college as many of the applications are restricted to seniors at Tyrone Area High School or in Blair County. Last year over $100,000 was given to students through our local scholarship program.
All seniors have been given access to the “TASD Local Scholarships 2023” Google Classroom. Please follow all of the instructions posted in order to complete scholarship applications. If you have any trouble accessing this information or have additional questions, please contact Ms. Broadfield at firstname.lastname@example.org or Mrs. Koeck at email@example.com
FOR OUR LOCAL SCHOLARSHIPS, DUE DATES WILL EITHER BE MARCH 7TH OR MARCH 21ST DEPENDING ON THE SCHOLARSHIP (Check the scholarship description guide for more information) - THERE WILL BE NO EXCEPTIONS TO THESE DEADLINES.
STEP 1: CHOOSE YOUR SCHOLARSHIPS -
Read through this Scholarship Description Packet: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1wNr_Iiv9eFt1_SpiOkgsb9FQjaUR6KiHJBvA7ugeaxY/edit As you go, make a list of the scholarships you would like to apply for on a piece of paper or your Chromebook.
STEP 2: COMPLETE THE TAHS SCHOLARSHIP ‘MAIN APPLICATION’ -
Go online to the 2023 TAHS Local Scholarships Google Classroom, under the “Classwork” tab you will see Application Directions. Clicking on Step #2 will bring you to the Main Application through google forms. This form is required to be considered for any local scholarships.
STEP 3: COMPLETE SUPPLEMENTARY MATERIALS -
You will notice that many scholarships listed require “Supplementary Materials” beyond the Main Application. These materials can be found on the Google Classroom under the individual scholarship’s name and must either be submitted online or turned in to Ms. Broadfield’s office, depending on the scholarship. The specifics for each scholarship’s supplementary material will be laid out on the Google Classroom. Some of the regional scholarships may require students to apply on an outside website or mail in the application. Students are responsible for those applications and their respective deadlines.
STEP 4: SUBMIT LETTERS OF RECOMMENDATION -
Read the supplementary material directions closely and note any scholarships that require letters of recommendation. Decide which teachers and/or community members you would like to ask for letters of recommendation. Make sure to request your letters early so teachers have plenty of time to write them!
