Please review the Scholarship Booklet list of scholarships that are available to you.  

Please do not procrastinate . . . if you work on your choice of scholarships in advance of the deadline dates you will have the best chance of getting them in on time.  Scholarship resource people will not consider your application if it is late.

IT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY to read the lists and get the application forms.  Many of these are now required to be done on line.

Some donors ask that we include your transcript with the application.  Please DO NOT WAIT UNTIL THE LAST MINUTE to make transcript requests from the Guidance Office.

Every student going to college, vocational school or any other post-secondary school should fill out the LOCAL SCHOLARSHIP APPLICATION and return it to the Guidance Office beforeApril 15th of each year.

The asterick (*) denotes local scholarships.  The Deer Isle-Stonington High School Scholarship Committee decides some of the local scholarships and the scholarship donors decide some.

As we become aware of new scholarships, an updated list will be mailed home to every senior.

Many colleges offer their own scholarships.  Remember to check with the financial aid office at the college of your choice.

GOOD LUCK WITH YOUR SCHOLARSHIP SEARCH!
