Local & Area Scholarships

This is a listing of local and area scholarships, generously offered by local citizens, groups, clubs and organizations. After the name of the scholarship, you will find a brief description of the scholarship. Local scholarships are available to only CHHS seniors while area scholarships might include applicants from other schools, like Anderson County or all high school seniors in Franklin County. When possible, we will give both word and pdf documents. You may click on the name of the scholarship and save the document into your computer. Paper copies are also available if requested. Scholarships will also be posted to our Google Classroom - Class of 2019. You may submit scholarships digitally (by email or Google Classroom) or print a hard copy to be mailed.

It is the responsibility of the student to gather all necessary documents for the Scholarship application. This includes but is not limited items like: 

 - Letters of Reference

- Resumes

- Applications

- Unofficial Transcript

Mrs. Oram will assist students when it comes to printing any required documents. However, it is ultimately the responsibility of the student to submit a completed application. 

As new scholarships become available I will post them in both the Class of 2019 Google Classroom and here on this site. Please see me if you have additional questions.
