- Academic Scholarships. These awards are based on high school GPA and ACT/SAT scores. Your highest score will be recorded so take these tests more than once!
- Endowed Scholarships. These awards are created by private donors, often for a specific purpose, and are awarded based on need. To qualify, you must file both a FAFSA and an Endowed Scholarship Application form.
- Departmental Scholarships. These awards are based on proficiency and previous experience in vocal music, band, sports, and forensics. Students audition or try-out for these awards.
