Hello Senior Guidance Counselors and Staff:
We are excited to announce The William D. Squires Scholarship award has just been increased from $3,000 to $4,000 per year and is renewable up to $16,000!
We appreciate your help each year in passing along our information to your seniors. Our 2018 scholarship application is available to download for free on the tab for seniors. Detailed eligibility requirements and instructions are included with the application. Please be advised that our eligibility requirements are strict.
We will begin accepting applications February 15th and the postmark deadline is Thursday, April 5th for the Class of 2018. A flyer is available as a handout to students that are interested in applying.
If you are not familiar, we are a small family foundation, a 501 (c) (3) nonprofit foundation. We offer financial need-based scholarships to high school seniors only from Ohio. To date we have awarded 264 scholarships for over three million dollars. A brief history and answers to questions about William D. Squires, our primary donor, are available. See: About the Foundation
There are many websites that include information about our scholarship and copies of previous applications. It is important that students submit the current 2018 application. This application cannot be completed at the last minute so please advise the students to start early to ensure being able to mail their scholarship application by the postmark deadline of April 5th.
