Scholarships

Seniors are reminded to check the scholarship file frequently.  Scholarship applications will be added when they become available.  If transcripts or a letter of recommendation from a school counselor is needed for a scholarship, please stop by the Guidance Office.  A Request for Transcripts for Scholarships form (pink) will need to be completed and submitted to the Guidance Administrative Assistant.

 

The Local Scholarship Application is due in the Guidance Office by the end of the day (2:30 pm) on Friday, March 23rd.  Applications will not be accepted after this time.  To be considered for most of our local scholarships this form must be submitted.

 

The Belchertown Scholarship Fund Application is now available online and in the Guidance Office in the scholarship file.  You can find the application online on the BHS website.  It is located on the left side of the BHS main page.  It is the 12th item down in the grayscale area under "Belchertown Scholarship Information" or to the left of this.  It is the 6th item from the bottom in the grayscale area under "Belchertown Scholarship Information".
