National scholarships are announced in the Daily Bulletin and posted on the school website on a weekly basis. There are also many scholarship search engines available online and most colleges and universities have separate scholarship applications. Beware of scholarship scams! See your counselor if you have any questions about a questionable scholarship opportunity.
Thousands of dollars from local clubs, community organizations, and private donors are given each year to THS seniors. Interested students need to complete an online scholarship application in January (information is mailed home). Scholarship recipients and their parents/guests are honored at Senior Awards Night in May in the Bulldog Arena. Many eligible students neglect to apply every year! Are you interested in being a scholarship sponsor? Contact Kristin Bettencourt at (209) 667-0888 for more information.
