    How to Apply for Scholarships:
    • Mr. Newkirk in the Career Center is the main contact for scholarships.

    • Bookmark the THS Scholarship Information page. Check this page often for new scholarships and to search for external scholarships: https://www.lcps.org/Page/200583.

    • Read the scholarship requirements and only select scholarships for which you qualify.

    • Fill out the information requested on the scholarship application neatly and completely and make sure to proofread it.

    • Submit the completed scholarship application with any other documents that are required prior to the due date.

    • Make sure to pay attention to the scholarship deadline. If it is not an online application find out where you are supposed to submit the scholarship application. (Some are returned to Mr. Newkirk and some are mailed directly from you).

    • Scholarship applications require a copy of your transcript. To request your transcript, pick up a copy of the Transcript Request Form in the School Counseling Office or download the Scholarship Request form from our Transcript page: https://www.lcps.org/Page/199504. After completing your signed request form, please turn it into Mrs. Vocke in the School Counseling Office for processing.
