The Robbins Scholarship gives preference to applicants pursuing careers in medicine, nursing or the legal field.

The Stewart Scholarship, the Flanagan Scholarship, the Ivory Scholarship, and the Endries Scholarships have no career limitations.

The Lee Law Scholarship applicants must have received their bachelor’s degree and been accepted or presently attending law school to qualify.

The other grant money is primarily available to help current high school students take college-level or other accredited courses while still in high school. The committee encourages students to take advantage of the opportunities the school is offering to help them complete their scholarship applications and write their essays.

Although essays are not required, they are highly recommended to help support the candidate’s application.
