Hello Senior Guidance Counselors and Staff:
Many of you are probably familiar with The William D Squires Scholarship. We appreciate your help each year in passing along our information to your seniors. Our 2017 scholarship application is available to download for free on the page 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 Wednesday, April 5th for the Class of 2017. A flyer is available for your scholarship bulletin board or 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) non profit foundation. We offer financial need-based scholarships to high school seniors only from Ohio. The award amount is twelve thousand dollars. To date we have awarded 249 scholarships and with the addition of 15 new scholarships to the Class of 2017, we will have awarded 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 2017 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.
