General Instructions for all Scholarships
PLEASE READ THESE INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE FILLING OUT SCHOLARSHIP APPLICATIONS
Most Local Scholarship applications are due by 3:30 on February 28 in the Front office. Pay Close Attention on how to submit and the deadline. No late applications will be accepted.
Some scholarship applications require Counselor signatures or verification and/or a high school transcript attached. Counselors will verify all the scholarships once all applications are turned in. A transcript will be attached to all scholarship applications that require a transcript.
Students are encouraged to use your transcript as a resource for filling out scholarship applications. You can email the WCHS registrar, Mrs. Harris @ Kimberly.Harris@white.k12.ga.us to get a copy of your transcript.
Pay close attention to specific scholarship requests. Some scholarships require an essay. Some require letters of recommendations. Some require teacher signatures. Some applications require copies of transcripts.
It is helpful to have your SAT scores (which can be found on collegeboard.org) and ACT scores (which can be found on actstudent.org) and your transcript before filling out your scholarship applications.
Applications should be neat, legible and thorough. It is recommended that you not use a pencil to complete applications.
It is important that a student provide honest and accurate information in their applications (honest and accurate information should also be outlined in letters of support).
