January 2019 Scholarship Notes

Happy New Year and welcome back!!!! Please find linked below the January 2019 OHS Scholarship Due Date calendar. You'll find two scholarships due within the next two weeks. Links to each also provided below. Both of these scholarships are administered by sources outside OHS but I wanted to make you aware of their availability. Applications are due to the organizations as indicated on the calendar and within the linked websites.

The remaining local scholarship due dates will begin February 1. If I become aware of scholarships due prior to that, I will email and post to this page. Be sure to check your emails and this page often this semester. Time will go very quickly and there will be a lot of information shared. I plan to email and publish calendars no later than the 15th of each month prior to the next month. Remember, most local scholarship applications need to be turned in directly to me. Be sure to do this by the due date indicated on the calendar. Submitting applications early is totally acceptable. (Do wait until all fall semester grades and transcripts are finalized before submitting your first local applications to me.) Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns throughout the semester. 

Best wishes for 2019 and the second semester of your senior year!!!!
