Welcome to DHS Scholarship Headquarters!

Local scholarships will be posted as we receive them.


Pay close attention to deadlines! You may email completed applications/essays to me at or drop them by the counseling office at DHS by the deadline. Feel free to email me with any questions!
Many institutional scholarships are awarded to students who apply to college early. The scholarship processes are unique to each institution. To find these college/university institutional or academic scholarships, look on the college/university website under Financial Aid or search Scholarships.
Pay CLOSE attention to deadlines for admission applications and scholarship application deadlines. Don't let the money run out before you decide to apply!
If you need to write something to apply for a scholarship or college, make sure to have someone proofread your essay and application before submitting it.
Good luck!!
Mrs. Scibilia
