Henderson Bay Scholarship Fund

Every year, local businesses, organizations and individuals award scholarships to Henderson Bay graduates. All graduating seniors who plan to continue their education are encouraged to participate in this scholarship program.

In order to compete for many of these scholarships, you must complete a scholarship notebook. Local donors utilize these notebooks to determine which students best meet their award criteria. Others prefer to let a school committee select the student or students who meet their criteria or who are most deserving. Your notebook will represent you and allow the donors and/or the scholarship selection committee to get to know you.

Since selections are based on your interests and achievements as illustrated by your scholarship notebook, you will want to present your best self. Your notebook will include a statement of purpose that details your future plans, letters of recommendation, awards and accomplishments, and personal pages of photos, artwork, poems, and other tangible illustrations of your life. Final deadline for the scholarship notebook is Friday, March 9, 2019
