  5. Seniors planning to go on to any school following graduation should apply for the Central High School Scholarships.  The scholarship application will be available on the Central HS webpage http://www.lacrosseschools.org/central-high/chs-scholarship-application/ on December 1st.  Applications must be submitted online by Friday, February 5, 2021 by 3:30 pm.   LATE APPLICATIONS ARE NOT ACCEPTED.  The CHS Scholarships include dozens of scholarships for two and four year schools.  The scholarships are designed for many types of students.  For example, some are for students with a high GPA and some are for students with middle or low GPA.   One considers GPA and athletic letters earned in high school.  Some take into consideration community service involvement.  Some are only for students applying to programs in health-related areas.  There are many possibilities so all students should apply!
