What is a Scholarship?
A form of financial assistance that does not require repayment or employment and which is usually offered to students who show potential for distinction, or who possess certain characteristics important to the scholarship provider (religious beliefs, hobbies, ethnicity, etc.).
Understanding the Various Types of Scholarships
This Local Scholarships list is maintained by the John Jay High School & Roy C Ketcham High School School Counselors. We recommend the Community Foundations of the Hudson Valley as a great site to apply for numerous local scholarships in one place. Most scholarships are available in January of senior year and are typically due in March or April. Make sure to research throughout the year, and to speak with your child's School Counselor if you have any questions.
