Dear NCHS Senior,
The NCHS Scholarship Foundation is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year! As you may have heard, changes have been made to this year’s annual fundraiser; students will no longer be going door to door asking for donations, but instead may participate this April in the NC Color Run which will benefit the NCSF. In addition to this, all students will be asked to help support the Foundation by soliciting pledges from family and friends. Stay tuned, more information will follow soon announcing our goal and the prizes you are eligible to win for your efforts!
The ultimate goal of the NCSF is to help as many of you as possible with financial assistance for your undergraduate education. If you are a senior and are planning on enrolling as a full-time student in a college or university (including technical and vocational schools), you may apply. Eligible students may qualify to receive aid for a maximum of four undergraduate years. Each applicant’s financial status is assessed by the College Scholarship Service. The basis for the Foundation’s decision is the information reported on the financial aid form and analyzed by the Service. The Foundation is using the same data that colleges employ in making their awards. All decisions are based solely on need alone.
For more information on how you may apply for a scholarship, please visit the new NCSF website at http://www.nchs-sf.org. Please be aware that applications must be submitted by May 5th. If you need further information or have questions, please don’t hesitate to contact your school counselor or Mrs. Granite in the Guidance Department.
