Scholarships & Procedures
Scholarships are grants, or monetary awards, that can support a student's education after high school. They are awarded on the basis of academic or other achievement. This page details how to submit scholarship applications to the LNHS Career Center for submission. This page also includes a list of scholarships available for student applicants. Don't stop looking here though! All colleges offer their own scholarships too. Be sure to visit their websites frequently. Also check with newspapers, magazines, parents’ employers, student’s employer, churches, and any student or parent/relative organizations/clubs.
Scholarship Application Procedures
All general scholarship applicants need to turn in their completed application (ready to be mailed/emailed) to the Career Center for review, school official or Dean signatures before the due date.
If a transcript is needed for mailing, complete Transcript Request Form, and turn it in with the completed application and a stamped/addressed envelope to the Career Center. DO NOT request transcripts electronically by using Parchment. “Unofficial” transcripts can be obtained through your own Infinite Campus account.
Transcripts for scholarships online: Complete the Transcript Request Form and turn it in to the Career Center to be emailed. The transcript will be scanned and sent to the designated scholarship email’s address you provide on the Transcript Form.
If the scholarship does not need a transcript or any sections completed by a school official (Dean), you can simply complete the materials and mail or email your application as directed on the application.
Letters if recommendation can be requested from teachers and deans. Letters should always be returned to the student in order to be mailed with the scholarship requirements. Letters can be placed in a sealed envelope with a signature across the seal for security and authenticity reasons. Allow 1-2 weeks for any official/Dean signatures or sections to be completed, obtaining transcripts, and mailing by the Career Center, before the scholarship due date. Each scholarship will be reviewed before mailing for accuracy requirements.

For confidentiality, if desired, financial information pages may be placed in a sealed envelope, and placed into a larger envelope for scholarship eligibility requirements and then given to the Career Center with any additional materials needed to be mailed while needing a transcript.
