LOCAL SCHOLARSHIPS UNION CITY AREA STUDENTS

This list of scholarships is presented in the following format:
A. Approximate amount of the scholarship (this amount may vary from year to year).
B. Requirements affecting eligibility. C. Primary features of the application. D. Application deadline.
Since many of the scholarships require a high school transcript and letters of recommendation, the student is advised to obtain these documents well before the application deadline so that other people who need to furnish these papers for the student will have time to provide them.
If the scholarship application is to be submitted to the high school guidance office, students should comply with the following procedure. Enclose all required information (application form, essay, and letters of recommendation, tax forms, etc.) in a folder or envelope and submit it to the guidance office. The guidance secretary or counselor will attach an official copy of the student's transcript to the student's application. The guidance office personnel will not be responsible for checking a student's application materials or for supplying any missing items. It is the student's responsibility to verify that his/her application contains all required items and that they are in the proper format.
