Please visit often as scholarship opportunities are added as they become available.

Fort Bragg High School
2016-2017  Scholarship Information

The entire scholarship packet should be submitted to the FBHS counseling office
before the end of lunch on Friday, December 8.*
*Yes, applications will be accepted after that date, but you may miss some early deadlines.

Submitting applications in advance rather than waiting to submit on deadline is strongly encouraged as scholarship committees look favorably upon students who show enthusiasm and punctuality.

The first steps in the scholarship process are:
1) preparing a brag sheet
2) requesting Letters of Recommendation - this is described in #5 below.


Please read through this entire document to prepare for submitting a complete application.

1.  Cover Page including your name, Fort Bragg High School, “Class of 2017”, and the title “Scholarship Application.”  Please organize documents in the order listed and enclose in folder with a clear plastic cover. 

2.Application Page - Complete online ***; then print!  Please do not hand-write.

  *** If this application does not appear to be in a writable format, please click on the upper-right corner above the application "open with different viewer."

3.  Résumé Please limit this to one page;  Limit this to the most significant of your accomplishments. If necessary, reduce margins to 1/2" and font-size to10 (but no smaller.)

4.  Two essay questions answered completely within 2-3 paragraphs for each question.

    A.  Describe an example of your leadership experience in which you have positively influenced others, helped resolve disputes, or contributed to group efforts over time.  Consider: A leadership role can mean more than just a title. It can mean being a mentor to others, acting as the person in charge of a specific task, or taking a lead role in organizing an event or project.  Think about your accomplishments and what you learned form the experience.  What were your responsibilities?  Did you lead a team?  How did your experience change your perspective on leading others?  Did you help to resolve an important dispute at your school, church in your community or an organization?  And your leadership role doesn't necessarily have to be limtited to school activities.  For example do you help out or take care of your family?

  B.  What is the one thing that you think sets you apart from other candidates applying for this scholarship?  Consider: Don't be afraid to brag a little.  Even if you don't think you're unique you are - remember, there is only one of you in the world.  From your point of view, what do you feel makes you belong on one of UC's campuses? When looking at your life, what does a stranger need to understand in order to know you? What have you not shared that will highlight a skill, talent, challenge or opportunity that you think will help us know you better? We're not necessarily looking for what makes you unique when compared to others but what makes you, YOU!

Essay Tips

 5.  Two letters of recommendation. (LOR) are letters written by adults who know you well and can provide information that will enable scholarship committees to see you in a different light than just your academic self. Letter writing takes time and is a courtesy to you, the applicant.  Please acknowledge the writer's time by giving the potential letter-writers advance notice, (1-2 weeks) and providing a copy of your completed Senior Brag Sheet at the time you request a letter.  It is helpful to ask that they write a generic-type greeting, such as “Dear Scholarship Committee Members,” give you a few copies and also save it on their computer for future use..  One letter must be from a FBHS teacher. The second should be from another adult (not a family member) who knows you well, i.e. a mentor, coach, or employer.

6.  The Counseling Office will insert your transcript into your application-- you do not need to request a transcript.

*****PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE  KEEP A PRINTED COPY OF YOUR ENTIRE APPLICATION.*****

Please note:  completing a FBHS General application does not guarantee that you will be awarded a scholarship. Not submitting an application ensures that you will not.

Some of the links below are to writable PDF's which allow you to complete the application online.  If you click the link and the PDF is not writable, look to the upper right corner of the document and click where it says "Open with different viewer"

 

The links listed immediately below are for scholarships offered to a broader population - some state or nationwide.  By nature these will be more competitive than our local offerings, but could still be well worth your time.

Please note: FBHS cautions students to NEVER PAY MONEY FOR SCHOLARSHIP APPLICATIONS.
Remember the old adage: "if it sounds too good to be true......."
