Welcome to Cassville High School's Scholarship Webpage

Please be advised that updates are being made for the Spring 2019 scholarship season as the donors send updates

Here are some tips on how to utilize this site:

  • The scholarships listed on this site are state-wide and national. 
  • These applications should be turned in to the organization offering the award, not to Cassville High School. 
  • These scholarships can be found in detail on the left sidebar in alphabetical order. 
  • I am updating them as I hear from the donors, yet many of them won't be updated until after January. For your convenience, scholarships updated for 2019 have their deadlines in purple. Please be advised, if a scholarship has the note "Awaiting 2019 updates from donor" you can review the material but don't use old application materials or deadlines until they appear in purple. I felt it was better for you to see the information from last year instead of removing it so you can get a peek of what is ahead.
  • Local scholarships specific to Cassville become available on March 4th, 2019. Information will be delivered in a class meeting, but local scholarships will not appear on this website.
