Scholarship opportunities for seniors

We are very proud of the accomplishments of our students and feel fortunate to live in a community which embraces and rewards our students' achievements and are grateful for the community organizations and private donors for their generosity.


Over the course of the academic year scholarships become available to our students. Some are local, some are regional and some are national. Each scholarship has its own specific criteria and procedure for applying. Scholarship information can be obtained by contacting any one of the guidance counselors.

All scholarships are posted on the website scholarship page. In addition, the Monticello High School Guidance Department is utilizing a remind text/e-mail service. Click here to sign up for the scholarship remind text and e-mail service.

Students can obtain scholarship applications from a guidance counselor or download them from the website below. It is important to follow the directions stated on the application. Some require students to submit them directly to the sponsor while others require that the application is submitted to the guidance office.

Due dates are firm and must be adhered to. Often the date due to the guidance office is different from the due date listed on the application. This is because guidance personnel need time to collect recommendations, transcripts and other required information.

March through May are the primary months for scholarship applications. It is suggested that the students have their scholarship letters of recommendation and resumes on file in their guidance counselor’s office prior to March 1 to expedite the processing of scholarship applications.

It is strongly recommended that scholarship recipients show their appreciation by sending a note of thanks to the donors.
