Scholarship Bulletin


Note: Not all scholarships are exclusive for seniors - some are open to underclassmen and current college students. Notices for these types of awards, as well as military and college specific scholarships, are listed at the bottom of this page.

SENIORS: As you start your final year at Hamburg High School, the Counseling Center would like to outline our Scholarship Bulletin and the procedure for submitting applications. The bulletin (below) will be ongoing and updated as new scholarship information is received.


Printed applications are usually available in the Counseling Center unless an on-line application is required. The scholarship information we receive is just a small fraction of what is available out there. With the rising costs of tuition, you will want to explore every source of financial assistance. If you work, check with your employer. Most fast food restaurants and grocery stores offer scholarships to their employees. Also, check with any unions, fraternal organizations, civic or church groups that your family may belong to.

NOTE: Check the individual school(s) website when you are applying to college. They offer a variety of scholarships which may be based on academic achievement, need, community involvement, leadership, etc.


When you have completed an application that needs an official transcript, bring it to the Counseling Center at least 5 school days before it needs to be mailed. You will then fill out a

Transcript Request Form complete with address and turn it in with your application. If you need a counselor, teacher, or coach recommendation, please give them two weeks notice ( and supply them with a stamped addressed envelope to mail it in if required).


Keep in mind that we are closed during Thanksgiving, Winter Recess, Mid-Winter and Spring Recess breaks as well as other holidays that you are not in school. Also, snow days, illness, etc. can delay processing.

Don't wait until the last minute to turn in your applications and transcript requests

The following websites are great sources of information, offering not only scholarship search websites, but also a wealth of financial aid information for students and parents, college research databases, online FAFSA guides, details on Federal and private school loans and grants.
