The deadline is July 1, 2016, & the application is available online at www.ghsedutrust.org. With tuition & student debt both rising at historic rates, the trust would like to remind applicants that this gift is not a traditional scholarship only for those who have exceptionally high grades. The awards are based primarily on need, & all applicants who have completed one year of college or one semester of trade school, who are full-time students in good academic standing at an accredited institution, & who are making steady progress toward the completion of a degree are given equal consideration. Other requirements listed on the application must be met & all information submitted on time. With assets now totaling over $5 million dollars, the trust, which was established by the GHS Class of 1938 in 1964, has awarded over $1.7 million dollars to hundreds of different GHS graduates. Most of these students have received multiple grants over the course of their academic careers. This includes a significant number of nontraditional students who have completed their degrees through correspondence or online courses in addition to traditional campus instruction. The trust has been supported by hundreds of faithful donors for over half a century to help as many GHS students as possible achieve their educational dreams & a better future. Apply now to be a part of this important Scotty tradition.
