Current PRHS Scholarship Information
Updated Jan. 9, 2012
Scholarship applications are available in the Main Office in the file cabinet next to the Restricted Study Hall Room. All scholarships are in alphabetical order and located in the top drawer of the file cabinet. Check the high school website, the senior bulletin board, the daily announcement sheet and the scholarship bulletin board for updates and new postings. .
If the folder is empty, please inform one of the Guidance Department Secretaries and additional copies will be made. In order to receive paper copies of scholarships students are responsible for picking them up personally. No scholarships will be mailed home. Often a scholarship will only report a website, please visit the website for appropriate materials and requirements.
It is the students’ responsibility to honor deadlines established by each scholarship. If supplemental materials are required to complete a scholarship (i.e. Transcripts, letters of recommendations) they should be handed into Mr. Hanlon well before the scholarship deadline to allow for processing.
If you have questions regarding scholarships please call or write Mr. Hanlon at (845) 620-3814 or firstname.lastname@example.org. You can always stop in the Guidance Office with questions too.
