• CHS Scholarships for Seniors
    Welcome to Central High School scholarship page! Scholarships will be listed in order of due date and will include access to the scholarship application. It is important that you follow the due date listed on this page and not on the scholarship application. Scholarship applications need to be turned in to the Counseling Office by the due date listed below. This allows us time to review your applications and contact you if we find any errors or missing documents before we send it. If you apply for scholarships through an online application and need a transcript or other documents mailed please see Mrs. Schank or Mrs. McCamy.
    A list of scholarships typically available through the Counseling Office throughout the year are listed in the Scholarship & College Planning Guide. Please note this is to be used as a guide only! The scholarships and deadlines listed in the guide were developed from last year's database and are not a complete list of all scholarships available. This page will provide you with the updated eligibility criteria and scholarship applications. As scholarships become available during the year we will post them here.
    Please keep track of the scholarships you receive throughout the year (this includes scholarships from the colleges you have applied to).  We will ask for this information at the end of the year when seniors take the Senior Exit Survey.
    ***Important: When working on scholarships, make sure that you are using a computer device that allows you to save and/or print.
    ***Many times a scholarship will ask for an activities list. We have attached a few samples of what it should look like.
