The scholarship awards are based on financial need and will vary in size from $500 to $5,000 annually. This year we will be awarding approximately 50 to 60 scholarships, so we would appreciate your help by encouraging only students who meet the financial qualifications to apply for this need-based scholarship. The following are tips to help your students determine if they fall within our definition of financial need.


*If annual income exceeds the listed amount for that family size, then the student does not have financial need, unless there are extenuating family or financial circumstances. There is space available in the Application for students to share detailed information regarding an extenuating circumstance.
