Scholarships & Awards

HOLY CROSS HIGH SCHOOL

SCHOLARSHIP INVENTORY- students are encouraged to check online for any possible changes to the scholarships listed in this booklet.

SOME HELPFUL HINTS:

  • Check with:
    • Holy Cross Student Services Bulletin "SPOTLIGHT" (published every two-three weeks) for new scholarship information, deadline changes, etc.
    • the particular college, institution, or university you are planning to attend to get information on specific scholarships, bursaries, etc. 
    • your parent(s)/guardian(s)/grandparent(s) as scholarships, awards and bursaries are often awarded through places of employment or affiliation with a specific organization, union, etc.
  • READ THROUGH THE SCHOLARSHIP WELL IN ADVANCE OF THE DUE DATE.
  • You may need to obtain endorsements, reference letters, and write personal essays.  This takes time to do well.  Give at least two weeks notice!!

PROVIDE TO YOUR REFERENCES:

  • COPIES OF THE SCHOLARSHIP CRITERIA.  It is very helpful to know what to highlight in a reference letter in order to tailor it to the particular scholarship.  For U of S scholarships and awards, indicate on the top right-hand corner of the reference letter which award(s) the letter should apply to.
  • A STUDENT PROFILE SHEET (blank copies are available from Student Services).  Adults writing reference letters need this information in order to be specific.  This will improve the quality of the reference.  Some applications require a personal resume or profile.
  • PRINT NEATLY OR TYPE.  Scholarship committee members read many, many applications.  Make sure yours is accurate and easy to read.  If your printing is not great, type it or find someone to copy it for you. 
  • SUBMIT CLEAN, COMPLETE APPLICATIONS ON TIME!!      
    • Pay attention to "must be postmarked by" or "must be received by" dates.
    • Check for neatness, spelling, and grammar.
    • Keep a copy for your own records.
