The Herricks Council of PTAs has been helping Herricks seniors continue their education with Scholarship Awards for over 50 years. The purpose of this award is to furnish assistance to students of Herricks High School to further their education. All graduating students are given an opportunity to apply for this award.
These awards are given for the primary purpose of assisting the students to complete their first year of college, university, trade school or other post-secondary institution.
Upon completion of an application, factors such as community service, character, special talent and special circumstances, as well as financial need, are all taken into consideration when choosing a recipient. All students, including those receiving special education services, may request help from their guidance counselor when filling out this application.
The Award Committee consists of a representative from each of the PTA units plus Council and may not have a child or other close relation that is eligible for the award. Applications are judged blindly with all student identifiers redacted. Students selected by the Award Committee will receive their award at the High School Senior Awards Ceremony in June.
Award applications are available in the Herricks High School Guidance Office or downloaded from this site.
Students applying for this scholarship MUST be a PTSA member by February 10th. The final deadline for applications to be received by the Guidance office is March 15th. There will be no exceptions.
