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 2021” 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. Mouritsen at firstname.lastname@example.org or Ms. Yaudes at email@example.com.
DUE WEDNESDAY, MARCH 10th - THERE WILL BE NO EXCEPTIONS TO THE DEADLINE DATE.
STEP 1: CHOOSE YOUR SCHOLARSHIPS -
Read through this Scholarship Description Packet: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1D2wURSJseinuRIkqU-tM1Or2FMeQNxenMQM9uFQXR8o/edit?usp=sharing 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 COMMON APPLICATION -
Go online to the Google Classroom to complete the Common 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 common application. These materials can be found on the Google Classroom and must either be submitted online or turned in to Ms. Mouritsen’s office, depending on the scholarship.
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! Letters must be printed on paper with official letterhead and be signed in ink by the recommender. They must be submitted in paper form to Ms. Mouritsen in the Guidance Office, along with a list of the scholarships they need to be sent to.
