Scholarship Opportunities…

Seniors Only…

 

Local Scholarships that will be presented at the Mulvane High School Senior Awards Assembly on May 20th, 2021.

 

Students may print, complete, and return forms to Mrs. Brown by the deadline noted on the form, unless otherwise stated.  (For example:  the American Legion application is mailed to the post or dropped off in person at the Legion post.)  Please read forms carefully so you know when and how to submit them.

 

Kansas All-Star Scholars Fund:  DEADLINE IS APRIL 17

Beginning March 15th starting at 10 a.m. CST, students who are planning to continue their education this fall are encouraged to go to www.KSAllStarScholarships.com and fill out the online application for a $1,000 scholarship. The deadline to apply is April 17, 2021 at 11:00pm.  In order to qualify, the student must be graduating from a Sumner County or Mulvane High School and have attended at least two years of high school in a Sumner County or Mulvane school district. Exceptions will be made by the Kansas All-Star Scholars Fund Board of Directors on a case-by-case basis.  

 

Our software we use for the application has been updated and the look of the application and process has changed. I’ve attached a pdf of a step-by-step of how the new application will work. If you have any questions, please let me know. If possible, I encourage that the information in this email and the step-by-step be added to your school website under your scholarship information.

 

When filling out the application, the student will have to provide basic information like school, graduation date, contact phone number and email. It’s very important that the student use a personal email address, not a school email, as we will need to contact them after graduation.  The application will also ask what school they will be attending in the fall. This can be left blank for the time being, but will need to be filled in by September 3, 2021 and prior to the school receiving scholarship payment towards the students account.

It’s incredibly important that students understand that before their classes start in the fall, they need to provide me with copies of an acceptance letter, full-time class schedule and student ID number. These documents need to be submitted by September 3, 2021. These documents may be conveniently uploaded right on the application website.  They can also be emailed or mailed directly to me.  My contact information is located below and on the scholarship website. We do not encourage faxing or dropping off the documents.  Once I receive these documents, checks will be mailed directly to their post-secondary institution. The college will apply half toward the Fall semester and half toward the Spring semester. 

 

The scholarships are non-competitive. Any student that we verify is a qualifying graduating senior will receive an award certificate. We will ask for your help in distributing these certificates at graduations and award assemblies.

Students with plans to enlist in the military don’t have to miss out.  They can provide proof of enlistment by September 2, 2019 and we’ll hold their scholarship for up to 4 years and the same qualifications will apply (need class schedule etc., must be full-time student etc.).

 

I will have posters delivered via mail and drop-off to each school to start advertising the application dates. Please hang these in high traffic areas so the students are aware of the application dates.

Scholarships for the top 10%, valedictorian and salutatorian will be offered again this year as well.  Please note the following guidelines for the added incentives:

  • If the school has more than one salutatorian or valedictorian, the school will be responsible for determining how the monies are divided, not the Scholars Fund board of directors. This division needs to be sent via email to Sonyajackson@boydgaming.com.
  • The added incentives will apply to all students who live within the Sumner County borders, even if they’re required to attend a non-Sumner County school.
  • If a student resides in Sumner County but has elected to attend a school outside of Sumner County beyond their home school district, then that student would not be eligible for added incentives.

***Seniors and Parents/Guardians:

I am getting questions about scholarships and what is available. Here is a list of scholarships that you can consider and apply for as you meet the criteria. I am also including a link to scholarship sites that are considered legitimate and safe. These are free website searches. If you run into a site that wants you to pay a fee, be cautious. You don't need to pay when there are others that are free. Here is a link to the scholarship search websites and a description of each.
