THE DEADLINE HAS PASSED TO APPLY FOR A 2017 SCHOLARSHIP - THE APPLICATION FORM AND LIST OF SCHOLARSHIPS IS AVAILABLE BELOW FOR YOUR INFORMATION.
We currently offer three types of scholarships. All of them use the same Foundation Scholarship Application which can be found below. However, Private Scholarships have some additional requirements. Here is a basic description of the Bucks for Bucs Scholarships.
A Bucks for Bucs Foundation Scholarship is an award that is funded by the Bucks for Bucs organization. We are looking for students who plan to attend a postsecondary program and have demonstrated excellence in academics, extracurricular activities, leadership, and/or community service. A strong candidate needn't excel in all four areas but will have a significant achievement in at least one area and some notable accomplishment in the other three areas. Typically awards range from $500-$750, depending on the fundraisers and donations for the year. To apply for these scholarships, you must submit a Foundation Scholarship Application to the Guidance Office by March 15, 2017.
A Bucks for Bucs Named Scholarship is an award given by the Bucks for Bucs organization but the funds have come from one major donor. These scholarships include some legacy scholarships donations and fraternal organizations. The requirements for these scholarships are the same--students must plan to attend a postsecondary program and have demonstrated excellence in academics, extracurricular activities, leadership, and/or community service. Typically awards range from $500-$750. These scholarship winners are chosen from the general pool of applicants, so if you apply for a Foundation Scholarship, you will automatically be considered for these Named Scholarship as well. No additional application is necessary.
A Bucks for Bucs Private Scholarship is an award that is managed by the Bucks for Bucs organization. These scholarships include many legacy donations and some extracurricular organizations. In addition to submitting a Foundation Scholarship application, applicants must meet additional criteria and write an additional essay. This application must be submitted, along with a copy of your Foundation Application to the Guidance Office by March 15, 2017. Because private scholarships have their own selection criteria, it is possible that one student could receive multiple private scholarships and/or a foundation or named scholarship. Please check the qualifications for these scholarships by clicking the Private Scholarship Information and Applications button below. If you meet the criteria, you may apply for as many of the private scholarships as you would like but you must submit a separate application for each scholarship.
