Scholarships

Welcome to Savannah 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. This allows us time to review your applications and contact you if we find any errors or missing documents before you send your application in. If you would like for us to send in your application, we would be happy to do so as long as you have an envelope and stamp included with your application. All scholarship that say "local-submit to Counseling Center" will be mailed by the Counseling Center. If you apply for scholarships through an online application and need a transcript or other documents please see Mrs. Hughes in the Counseling Center. 

 

A month by month list of scholarships typically available through the Counseling Center are listed in the 2018-2019 Scholarship GuidePlease 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 on the website here.

Deadline: 

November 5, 2018

This award is given on a point system based on ACT score, verified financial need, evidence of school and community leadership skills, academics, extracurricular activities, recommendations and essay. The organization, completeness, and neatness of the application are also important. Applicants may submit up to 10 exhibits of achievement in academics, athletics, dramatics, leadership, community service, etc. (a resume/activity list is NOT an exhibit). An application will be emailed to the student from scholarship@elks.org. Students need to take the ACT before November. Your application must be in a folder with inside pockets and clasps.  Everything, except items in sealed envelopes, should be three-hole punched and placed in the clasps of the folder. Information is available online at http://www.elks.org/ENF/scholars/.
