    The Titan Scholarship Newsletter is your resource for scholarships available to students (mostly available to Seniors). It will be updated regularly to reflect current scholarship opportunities.  An effort is made to include local, state, and national scholarships based on information received.  You are encouraged to visit this page often.  

    Some scholarships require school endorsements/recommendations to be considered.  For these scholarships, students should submit the Request to be considered for a scholarship Google form by the established deadline.  

    For School Counselor recommendations, allow two weeks for completion. It is important for students to complete the student “Recommendation/Scholarship Questionnaire” before requesting a letter of recommendation from counselors or teachers.  These forms are available online and will also be distributed during your individual meeting with your School Counselor beginning the week of September 14.
