Class of 2018 Scholarship Opportunities

2017-2018 
Check back frequently - We will continue to add scholarships as we get them throughout the year.

Some other databases for scholarships are listed below. Most of these will have you fill out a profile and then it will send you emails with scholarships that match your profile. You might want to open a new email account specifically for these scholarship data bases. That way your personal email is not flooded with these scholarship emails and when you are done with the search you can delete that email account. Also remember you should not pay for any scholarships or scholarship searches.

An Exclusive Preview of the
2017–18 NHS Scholarship Program

Applications for the 2017–18 National Honor Society (NHS) Scholarship Program will open on October 6. All NHS senior members in good standing will be eligible to apply.

Your NHS chapter adviser received an email with the following information, and I am sharing this with you as well.

I suggested your adviser let your NHS seniors know the following:

  • Three recommendations will be required. Applicants will be asked for an email address for recommenders. So they should be gathering email addresses for and enlisting support from:
    • the adviser
    • you—the principal
    • another faculty member
  • Applicants will need to detail participation or leadership in their three most significant individual service activities or projects.

You and your adviser will receive an email on October 6 when the application opens. The adviser will get instructions for accessing application procedures. The application deadline will be January 30, 2018. You will need to complete your recommendations and certifications of applicants by this date.

A total of $1.5 million will be awarded, disbursed among 500 NHS seniors. Questions? Please visit the Scholarship FAQ or email scholarship@nhs.us.

Thank you for supporting NHS and its parent organization, the National Association of Secondary School Principals, in our commitment to supporting the lifelong success of our highly motivated student members.

NHS is offering members a free virtual workshop called “How to Shine in Your Scholarship Applications.”
