How to apply for a NHSAA Scholarship

Dragon Class of 2018

Click here for the 2018 scholarship application

Welcome back to NHS for your senior year. It is never too early to start preparing for graduation and your next step in life. 
Colleges and universities are already preparing for your enrollment applications. 
Once school starts in August, you will need to think about all the items necessary for your entrance into college.

Items you will need for college and scholarship applications:


An essay This is the chance to brag about yourself, remember you are selling yourself to the college so they will choose you over another candidate.
Letters of Recommendation  It is never the wrong time to ask someone for a letter, except the day before it is needed.  Begin to choose the people that you want to write these letters for you.
Ideas include coaches, sponsors, employers, friends of your family, and people that may know you really well.  Ask soon, give them plenty of time to write that top flight letter.  
**Do not forget to send them a thank you once you have the letters.
A calendar This can help you receive the most scholarships and may even help you get into that university you have always wanted to attend.  Place deadlines and set up a schedule for all those items that are required from the university of your choice.  Missing a deadline can cripple your chances for acceptance.
Go Center An excellent resource located here on the NHS Campus, Mrs. Stanaland will help you with all the different applications that you will need.  Do not forget your college entrance exams.

Also important are your scholarships.  The NHS Alumni Association was founded to help you, the seniors at NHS, attend college, by providing scholarships to those graduating from NHS. 
**The one way to guarantee that you will not receive any scholarships, IS TO NOT APPLY.**

Scholarships are our priority!  Our goal is to provide scholarships to NHS students.  If you or your business wish to fully endow a scholarship annually by a tax deductibule contribution, please contact us and we will be happy to fully explain the process.  As the years have progressed, the number of scholarships given by NHSAA has grown exponentially from one scholarship in 1995 to fifty-two in 2017.   There are 3 recently endowed scholarships which brings the total endowed to 48.   The NHSAA is continuing to strive towards its purpose of helping as many graduating seniors reach their goal of higher education as possible.  All together the NHSAA has awarded $820,000 dollars to deserving Dragon graduates!
