Senior Local Scholarships


Local scholarships will be available January 2024

Scholarships will be available to graduating seniors of the Quincy School District in January 2024.

Each scholarship is described in detail. The sponsoring group may change the award at any time. Each sponsoring group establishes their own ground rules for the selection of award winners.

All scholarships list the due date and have instructions on how to submit the application. Late applications will not be accepted. If additional information is required you are encouraged to contact the donors of the scholarship or a Counselor.

The Quincy School District #144-101 complies with all federal rules and regulations and does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, sex, or handicap. This holds true for all students who are interested in participating in educational programs and/or extracurricular school activities. Inquiries regarding compliance procedures may be directed to the school district's superintendent.

Additional Hints
Read scholarship descriptions carefully – you won’t qualify for all of them.
Check deadlines on all applications – make sure your application will arrive at the final destination before the deadline.
Follow the application instructions; read instructions again when putting the application together to be sure you have everything. Not doing so will cost you a scholarship.
Rotary Application – be sure to check which scholarship(s) you are applying for. They will throw it away if you don’t.
Ask for recommendation letters several weeks before the deadline. Be polite and appreciative, these letters are very time consuming. Be sure to send a thank you.
ALWAYS SAVE TO AT LEAST 1 BACKUP. You don’t want to be scrambling at the last minute to retype everything if your computer goes down.
