For High School Students

I am currently a high school student and will graduate in May/June, can I still apply?

If you meet all other scholarship criteria and plan to be in college in the fall, yes, you can apply for our scholarship if you are currently in high school.

I will be completing my 12 hours after the spring semester can I still apply?

Unfortunately, no, you must have completed the required hours BEFORE applying for our scholarship. However, keep in mind that our scholarship cycle opens annually; we encourage you to apply next year.

I completed my hours through concurrent/dual enrollment, does that count?

Yes, if you can provide a college or university transcript reflecting those earned hours. We do not accept high school transcripts

All hours earned must reflect on a college or university transcript.

Do CLEP Exams and/or AP Classes count?

Yes, if you can provide a college or university transcript reflecting those hours.  If you are not able to get this information on an official transcript, we will accept an official letter from the institution's Registrar's office indicating the number of completed hours that will be credited. We do not accept high school transcripts.

What happens if I have not decided what college or university I am going to attend in the coming academic year?

Applicants must fill out the application to the best of their knowledge.Applicants must fill out the application to the best of their knowledge. As soon as you determine where you will be attending and it is different than what you put on your application, you should submit an Update Request Form as soon as possible so that we can update your records

What can I do if I only have a high school transcript or not all my hours earned are on my college transcript?

If you can not provide a transcript with your hours from a college or university, an acceptable option is to contact the Registrar's Office of the college or university you have been accepted to and request a letter from them that lists the courses they will be accepting upon your enrollment. They should be able to note the hours earned in high school through concurrent enrollment or AP Exams. This would be sufficient if a transcript can not be provided. Note: The letter must come from the Registrar's Office of your school.
