Scholarships and Financial Aid

 Eagleville High School Students it is NEVER too early to start looking at scholarship opportunities that can help you attend college. 

 

What is a scholarship?

A scholarship is a financial award given to a student based on academic achievement and promise. Many scholarships are awarded based on merit. However, some also consider financial need. Scholarships typically do not have to be repaid.

 

Applying for scholarships is a number game, and the more scholarships you apply to, the better your chances of winning. The key to a great scholarship search is to start applying as soon as possible.

 

REMEMBER: Some scholarships require letters of recommendation, essays, transcripts or other supplemental materials. It takes time to gather these materials!

Please investigate what is required of each scholarship well in advance of the deadline. Don’t procrastinate!

 

Scholarship Tips:

1. Search early, apply early.

2. Check eligibility requirements, apply to all for which you qualify.

3. Never pay money to apply for a scholarship

4. Check your application for mistakes before you submit it.

5. Have someone proofread any required essays.

6. Ask for letters of recommendation early, at least a month before the due date.

7. Research and know something about the organization that is offering the scholarship.

8. Don’t miss deadlines. Use a calendar and checklist to get organized.

Most Valuable Student Scholarship
Since 1931, the Elks National Foundation has helped thousands of students who need financial assistance fulfill their dreams of attending college. Most Valuable Student scholars are outstanding students who are at or near the top of their classes, active in their schools and communities and recognized as leaders by their peers.
The ENF awards $2.44 million annually in MVS scholarships to 500 high school seniors nationwide. The first and second place awards are among the largest scholarships provided by any major fraternal or service organization.
ELIGIBILITY: Any high school senior who is a U.S. citizen may apply for an MVS scholarship. Applications will be judged on:
  • SCHOLARSHIP
  • LEADERSHIP
  • FINANCIAL NEED
APPLICATIONS: Available OnLine.
For details, visit enf.elks.org/mvs
Nursing Scholarship
The Nursing Scholarship program was selected as the major project for the Tennessee Elks Association in 1956 as a means to relieve a critical shortage of nurses in Tennessee. The need for nursing scholarships is just as important. Each year the Tennessee Elks continue to fund varying levels of scholarships to students. This program is administered by the Tennessee Elks Benevolent Trust (TEBT).

Nursing scholarship application forms are distributed to Tennessee Elks Lodges in early October. The local Lodges then distribute them to high school counselors, colleges and hospitals within the jurisdiction of each Lodge to be used by individuals pursuing a 4-year degree in the nursing field. Applications must be submitted to the Lodges as indicated on the application forms—usually in January. After judging at the local and state levels, winners are notified in April or May. In managing the scholarships, awards are paid directly to the student’s school of choice. The student then may draw against an account for allowable expenses such as tuition, books, lab fees and dormitory expense.

For more information, contact your local Elks Lodge.

To apply for a nursing scholarship go to the following web site;

Trade Scholarship
The Trade Scholarship is an innovative scholarship intended to help those students that are often overlooked for financial aid. The Trade Scholarship is for graduating seniors as well as non-traditional students (those changing career fields or those needing additional education to progress in their current career) who will be pursuing a trade or certificate program.

Applications are available at the following web site:
