Scholarship

Apply for Scholarships Available Only to Sherwood Seniors

Submit applications by March 1st 2017 to rmacgill@verizon.net

  • Awards range from $300 to $20,000 for graduating seniors to continue full- or part-time education at any accredited university, college, vocational school, or organized instructional program that meets requirements for federal student aid.
  • Think you won’t qualify? Sherwood PTSA targets resources to help students from all income levels.
  • Easy to apply. It takes about half an hour to complete the questionnaire. Send it along with a brief personal statement, two recommendations, a college essay of your choice (or other representative sample showcasing your work and accomplishments).
  • Get some of the money that gets left on the table! Encourage students to apply. 45% of Maryland students missed out on the chance to get an average $3,712 federal grant by not taking the first easy step to qualify – filling out the FAFSA — the key to a gateway of financial aid opportunities.
  • Start now! Most families complete the FAFSA in less than a half hour – about the time it takes to watch a TV show. Students who file in January and February receive more than twice as much funding on average as students who file later.
