This application enters you into consideration for approximately 70 general scholarships that will be awarded to Central seniors at the Senior Scholarship Program on Monday, April 27, 2020 at 7:00 p.m. The application information is needed by the Central High School Scholarship Committee (which includes all Department Chairs and counselors) and is used to make scholarship award decisions. Please understand that a scholarship may be rescinded if information submitted is inaccurate or has changed since submitting your application. You are responsible for keeping Student Services updated on your acceptance as this will affect your consideration for scholarships with specific criteria.
I understand that if chosen as a scholarship winner, according to Central High School’s policy, I must provide evidence of enrollment/registration at the post-secondary institution of my choice for the Fall of 2020 before scholarship funds can be awarded.
You will need approximately 30 minutes to complete this application. Plan on completing the entire application in one sitting, because you will not be able to save and go back to finish.
**There will be an option to explain special circumstances toward the end of the application.

Scholarship Scams. It should not cost you anything to apply for a scholarship. If you have questions, stop in Student Services or see the “scholarship scams” section on the Student Services section of Central’s website.
If a transcript is required, in most cases an unofficial copy will suffice. Please see Mrs. Silha in Student Services for further instructions if an official transcript is required.
