Upcoming Scholarship deadlines

Examples of qualifying programs are: fire fighting, culinary arts, cosmetology, nursing, automotive — many more. Last year all of the scholarships were not awarded due to lack of applicants. Download the application online.

Six local students will win scholarships, so don’t miss out by not applying. Five hundred national scholarships will be awarded ranging from $4,000 to $60,000.
