I AM A CLASS OF 2023
HOW DO I CLAIM MY SCHOLARSHIP MONEY?
All of the local scholarships, the ones in blue folders, had instruction sheets placed behind the scholarship certificates that included where you should send thank you notes and also how to receive your scholarship awards. The instructions for the scholarship awards are as follows:
Please note that most local scholarships will not be paid out until you send Mrs. Shafer two things at [email protected]:
1) a transcript from your Fall 2023 semester showing satisfactory academic progress, and
2) a class schedule for Spring 2024 semester.
Please make sure that your name and the name of the college/university appears on the transcript. Please also be sure to include the address to which you would like your check sent. Once these two things have been approved by the donor, the necessary paperwork can be completed in order for you to receive payment.
Any scholarships from ACCF, the ones announced by Mr. Kidney, would have had directions provided by ACCF. If you have questions, you may contact ACCF at: https://ashlandforgood.org/
ALL scholarship Information will be added here as it is received for the 2023-2024 school year, usually this process does not start until December. Please understand that it is impossible to list everything. Scholarship information will be listed according to the scholarship's DUE DATE. Scholarships will be removed from this list after their due dates have passed.
Scholarships will also be divided into two categories LOCAL and STATE/NATIONAL. STATE/NATIONAL scholarships are more competitive since there will be many more applicants.
Please do not wait until the due date to turn things in to the guidance office! Doing so may make it impossible for necessary tasks to be accomplished and for everything to be turned in to scholarship committees on time.

Applying for scholarships requires you to be aware of the deadlines and requirements associated with each scholarship. Allow yourself plenty of time to complete applications, write essays if required, and request recommendations. Early submission of materials is strongly encouraged!
Tips for Completing Scholarship Applications:
- Start Early! Do not wait until the week the scholarship is due.
- Check the Eligibility Requirements. Look at areas such as GPA and intended major to make sure you qualify.
- Follow Instructions Carefully. Include all requested materials, get every required signature, submit as many copies as required, formatted exactly as requested, and keep the essay relevant.
- Neatness and Accuracy Counts! Check your spelling. Print carefully with black ink – no pencil! If your handwriting is difficult to read, consider typing the application. Answer questions as completely and correctly as you can. Avoid abbreviations that are not easily recognizable.
- Proofread Your Application Carefully. Enlist the help of other people to proofread your application.
- Request materials or letters of recommendation from counselors, teachers, or community members at least 2 – 3 weeks before the deadline. (See Letters of Recommendation Guidelines below.)
- Ask Questions. If you are unsure about how to complete an application, stop by the Guidance Office for assistance.
