As we continue to learn and work from home, please use the link above to submit your document requests to Mrs. Wood. Please complete a separate form for EACH scholarship application. You will be responsible for mailing/submitting your scholarship applications and the necessary "non-academic" documents required by each organization.  Pay very close attention to deadlines! Once you submit the forms to Mrs. Wood, she will prepare and send your documents.  If your application does not reach the organization by the deadline, you may be disqualified.

Seniors:  Check this page frequently for scholarship opportunities. Be sure to check deadlines!

A Message from Mrs. Wood
College scholarship opportunities are updated frequently on the Bishop Stang High School website. We often announce scholarships during morning announcements, so be sure to listen! You are encouraged to visit this site often to check on scholarships that apply to you. You will often receive email announcements with scholarship opportunities, so check your email on a daily basis. Unless otherwise stated, many applications are available for immediate download from this page.

For University/College specific scholarships, visit the college or university's website - search under "scholarships". By simply applying, you may automatically be eligible for merit scholarships; however, there may be other scholarships that require an application - be mindful of deadlines!  We make the process very easy for you ... please click here to review the procedure for applying to local and national college scholarships.

Requests are due to me in the counseling office at least one week prior to the scholarship deadline. The quest for scholarship money takes time and effort on your part, however, the results from your hard work can certainly pay off in the end! There IS money out there, it's up to YOU to find it! If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to stop by the School Counseling Office to see me! I'm here to help!

Sincerely,
Mrs. Wood​

I will be posting scholarships as I receive them. You will also get an email each time I post.
