Throughout the year, the DHS Counseling Office receives notice of available scholarships. We update scholarships in news bulletins on this website as they come in. You can also check out scholarship opportunities by going to the websites of your prospective colleges/universities. They will have them listed with filing deadlines.
Local Scholarships are posted in the spring. Generally, local businesses and organizations notify DHS of the scholarships available for that graduating class. The local scholarship packet and applications will be distributed to all seniors at their class meeting in late March/early April. All applications completed by students are copied and forwarded to the businesses and organizations sponsoring the scholarships and then they will select the recipients. Subsequent to reviewing your application (which often includes an essay explaining why you would benefit from the scholarship), they may elect to conduct personal interviews with the students before making their final decision.
