The recipients are notified in May and receive their monetary award the following January. The amount of the monetary award varies each year depending on the interest earned on the fund.

Scholarship applications will be available each January at the counselors' offices at Senior High, West High, Skyview High and the Career Center. A downloadable version will be posted on this web page in January. The deadline for completed applications accompanied by all required documentation is the first Tuesday in March.
