Southwestern College will be mailing out FULL TUITION SCHOLARHIP applications on December 1st to any Senior student that completes the CONTACT ME FOR THE 2021 COMPETITION.There are two competitions, The Pillars and Moundbuilder Spirit competition. The Pillars is geared towards an academically driven student and the Moundbuilder Spirit is meant for a student that is engaged and active in their community or high school. Unlike some competitions, we do not base the competitions on GPA or ACT to determine who can compete. There are four full tuition scholarships (two for each competition) awarded each year to students that take part in our competition and each student that participates is awarded a renewable $1,000 scholarship.
First, I'm excited to announce two partnerships with scholarship providers to offer $25,000 scholarships to 30 deserving students. That's $750,000 in award money! These are: the Foot Locker Student-Athlete Scholarship and the 1 for 2 Education Foundation Scholarship (see below for more details). As always, you'll get access to all our scholarship listings by signing up for a counselor account. In addition, we've partnered with schools and districts across the country (including the New York City Department of Education) to sponsor the FAFSA® Made Easier and make it free for students to use. Here's how it works: Your seniors can use our form (with simplified questions, tax form previews, searchable FAQs, and expert help via chat/email), instead of the government one. You and other counselors/administrators can see detailed, real-time reporting of each student's progress through the FAFSA® form, including which section a student is stuck on. For all this, your school/district pays a reduced rate of $10 per senior. See the brochure here, or schedule a no-commitment FAFSA® demo. Kind regards, Charlie Maynard Co-founder & CEO

We have an exciting update here at the University of Oklahoma: We have added test-optional scholarships for students entering OU during the 2021-22 school year! Students who apply as a test-optional applicant will be considered holistically for scholarships. This means all admitted students who have at least a 3.25 scholarship GPA will receive a scholarship. Students are still encouraged to submit a test score to ensure the highest scholarship and the fastest notification of an award. At the same time, there was no tuition increase for the 2020-21 school year, marking the third straight year tuition has been the same rate. Our goal as an institution is to increase college education access and recognize deserving students, and these increases demonstrate that commitment. As a university committed to academics and our students, we are taking action to make OU more affordable. Encourage your students to apply to OU by Nov. 1, our early action admission deadline, to receive priority consideration for OU's merit-based awards. See the latest scholarship amounts, and please feel free to contact your OU admissions counselor, Artemio Castillon, at email@example.com or 405-325-2151. Boomer Sooner! Jeff J.

2021 U.S. Presidential Scholar Recommendations Due October 30 Presidential Scholar pic The Oklahoma State Department of Education is soliciting recommendations of our State's top scholars for the prestigious U.S. Presidential Scholars Program recognition award. We ask that educators submit information for an outstanding SENIOR student graduating between January and June 2021 who you believe will represent the State of Oklahoma well if selected as a U.S. Presidential Scholar. Scholars will be selected based on outstanding leadership in the areas of academic achievement, community involvement, and positive character. As you form your recommendation, consider what makes the student stand out as having exemplary scholarship. Has the student overcome special challenges or hurdles while still achieving high academic success? Has the student engaged in consistent service learning that has impacted the school and community? Does the student exhibit innate leadership qualities that build relationships and empower others. We invite you to tell their story. Be their champion for this honor of excellence. The U.S. Presidential Scholars Program (USPSP) was established in 1964, by executive order of the President, to recognize and honor some of our nation's most distinguished graduating high school seniors. In 1979, the program was extended to recognize students who demonstrate exceptional talent in the visual, creative and performing arts. In 2015, the program was again extended to recognize students who demonstrate ability and accomplishment in career and technical education fields. Each year, up to 161 students are named as Presidential Scholars, one of the nation's highest honors for high school students. Recommend an Oklahoma Senior using the link below. (STUDENTS CAN ONLY BE NOMINATED THROUGH THEIR STATE AGENCY. DO NOT SUBMIT DIRECTLY TO USPSP.) U.S PRESIDENTIAL SCHOLAR RECOMMENDATION FORM DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSION IS FRIDAY, OCTOBER 30, 2020. Note: Recommendations do not guarantee nomination. More than one student from each school can be submitted for recommendation. Make sure your district is represented in the pool of prospective nominations! For questions about this process, email firstname.lastname@example.org.

As I reflect back on this first week of school, my thoughts always come back to the character that our students have shown as we have started the school year. I know there have been challenges and I anticipate that there will be many as we work our way through the year. The characteristics of a TROJAN are generally described as a BRAVE, HARDWORKING, and DETERMINED individual who protects the ancient City of Troy. I can’t think of a better way to describe how are parents, teachers, and students have responded to this pandemic. So Parents and Community thank you so much for helping us get the school year started as we try to instill the characteristics of a TROJAN into each one of our students. I know your students will benefit from attending Sharon-Mutual Public Schools. In closing I want to re-assure you that our teachers are a BRAVE, HARDWORKING, and DETERMINED group of individuals who will do everything they can to protect your students. Remember: TROJAN PRIDE NEVER DIES!! #trojanprideneverdies

Parents, we need your help! Some of the high school students are not turning in their work. Please make sure your students are completing the assignments in Spark or the paper work which has been sent to them if internet access is not available and returning the completed assignments to the teachers. This is work which is beneficial to the students and we don't want their skills to slip. It will be difficult for teachers in the future to write recommendation letters for scholarships and opportunities if students are not turning in their work and finishing out the year since the opportunity is available to them. They are welcome to accelerate through in classes where they can and get the year wrapped up, but it is important that they finish. Thanks for your support!

Students, hope you're taking time out from online learning to get some exercise, take up some new hobbies, or spend time with your family making some special memories. Don't stress over the challenges of learning online. Keep in touch with your teachers by email and let them know if you're having problems or if you have questions. Parents, it's important to keep your students emotionally healthy during this time. Encourage them to learn some new skills like building items out of recycled materials, crocheting, take them fishing or bike riding. Plan a picnic together. Take advantage of this time to have some fun together. It's important to give them purpose and fun along with their studies. This is such a contrast to the time they are accustomed to spending with friends and schoolmates they may experience some emotional lows. If there's anything you need help with or if you have questions, feel free to contact any of your teachers or Mrs. Hopper as counselor. Stay healthy! Hope to have life back to normal soon!

College can be expensive. That’s why scholarships for women are so valuable. First, they help lower the cost of going to school, which is worthwhile in itself. Second, they are only open to female students, making them potentially less competitive. If you have a female student getting ready to head to college, here is the ultimate list of scholarships for women and girls. If your student isn’t sure what degree she will pursue or simply wants to apply for awards that don’t require a specific major, general scholarships are an excellent choice. This site includes scholarships that aren’t restricted to specific fields, making them more flexible than some other options, like scholarships for women in STEM. Apply today!

Students have to have at least a 19 in reading and a 19 in any subject area they wish to take classes in on their ACT. That's one more reason it's important for students to begin taking their ACT. I recommend once toward the end of the year their freshman and sophomore years and 2-4 times their junior and senior year. Get signed up at actstudent.org. Mrs. Hopper can help you to see if you qualify to take concurrent classes and help you get signed up.
Check out Oklahoma's Promise for your students in grades 8-10 at https://www.okhighered.org/okpromise/. It is a tuition payment program for qualifying students whose family has an adjusted gross income of $55,000 or less.
Scholarship available - grades 9-12 The Oklahoma Scholarship Competition provides an opportunity for Oklahoma high school students to earn cash scholarships and tuition grants for college. With at least ten scholarships in each county available, students compete based on their knowledge of Oklahoma history, our people, and geography. This program is designed to reward Oklahoma students who have taken an interest in the rich history of our great state. It is hoped students will be encouraged to stay in state to attend college and remain living and working in Oklahoma after receiving their degrees. For convenience and wider statewide access, this year's Oklahoma Scholarship Competition will be 100% online. This timed test will be available all day on Saturday, March 28th. Students in grades 9-12 are eligible to participate in the exam. All students must pre-register by Friday, March 13th at 5 p.m. To see a list of scholarships available in each county, to register for the test, and to download a study guide, visit https://oklahoma-hof.com/scholarships or call 405-235-4458.
