Redefining Ready Scholarship
Attention 2017 Seniors! NEW Scholarship Opportunity - Workshop May 4th (Optional)
We are excited to announce the 2017 Redefining Ready! National Scholarship sponsored by Hobson’s. Sixteen scholarships will be awarded to high school graduating seniors ranging from $1,000 to $5,000.
To apply for the scholarship, students must submit a 30-second video on Twitter that demonstrates college and career readiness. All seniors interested in applying are invited to a ‘open house’ style workshop from 2:30-4:30 p.m. Thursday, May 4, where school/district staff will be on hand to provide examples and answer questions as students consider how to approach their 30-second video. This workshop will be held in Conference Rm E in the District Office.
Those who participate in the workshop are also invited to participate in the next installment of the district’s College and Career Readiness video series. Students who are willing to help with the district video are asked to dress appropriately (business casual) and will be asked to answer a few short questions on video.
Students who would like to attend the workshop on May 4th should fill out this quick 15 second google survey by Friday, April 28th, so that we can plan accordingly. SURVEY LINK.
Applicants are asked to connect specific learning experiences that they feel specifically contributed to their readiness to embark on the post-secondary plan they have developed to reach their personal, academic, social, and career goals. For example: success in college level coursework, participation in an internship/apprenticeship, success in career-related coursework, participation in clubs, sports, and school activities.
This scholarship is open to all seniors with plans to attend a university, technical college, and/or enter the military/workforce. Students are uniquely positioned to apply for this scholarship because of the District’s focus on Academic and Career Planning. Winners will be determined by an AASA-selected committee based on the 30-second video entry and a short written prompt. Unlike most scholarships, grade point and/or financial need are not specifically considered. Creativity counts, but so does honest, authentic and compelling content.
