Scholarships, whether academic or athletic, are awarded to a student based on the criteria set forth by the awarding agency. The criteria usually includes, but is not limited to, the following information: GPA, ACT or SAT, class rank, demonstrated overall ability in academic/athletics, extracurricular activities with emphasis upon leadership, community involvement, and sometimes the financial need of the student. The scholarships may require essays, interviews, and special applications. You should recognize that scholarships are very competitive and will almost always go through a selection process.
Please understand that neither Cascade High School nor the counselor makes the final decision as to who receives scholarships. This is done only by the awarding agency. It is important for you to understand that since many students are applying for same scholarships, the competition is usually very great. Therefore, I highly encourage you to apply for every scholarship for which you qualify.
YOU are responsible for applying and meeting all the deadlines required by each scholarship agency. I will gladly help you in every way possible, but it is up to you to secure and implement the process.
