Community Scholarship Information

IMPORTANT: Before applying for one of these scholarships, read these directions first.

These scholarships are for Fenton students only. It is guaranteed that at least one Fenton student will receive each of the scholarships listed on this page. 

You must first fill out the Fenton Scholarship Application. Every organization will receive a copy of the Fenton Scholarship Application. Some scholarship applications will also have a supplement. The supplement will provide you with information about the scholarship and, in some cases, will require that you give additional information, provide letters of recommendation, and/or answer essay questions.

The applications are Google forms into which you can directly type and submit your responses. If you need assistance with the forms, please see Ms. McDougal or your counselor.

You must submit all scholarship applications via Google by the end of the day on Wednesday, April 4. Read the directions on each individual application carefully, as they all are different from one another. Missing materials or information may result in the disqualification of your application.

Some applications require letters of recommendation.  You can either submit hard copies of your letter(s) to Ms. McDougal by the deadline, or you or your recommender can e-mail them to her at mcdougal@fenton100.org.  If you have letters of recommendation that are already in Naviance, please e-mail Ms McDougal to let her know which staff member's letter you'd like to use.

Some applications require essays.  Remember that these are formal essays, similar to what you would submit for a class or a college application, so we recommend that you write and edit them in another program first and then cut and paste into the box.
