Scholarships can be an important part of paying for college. Earning scholarships requires planning, preparation, research and diligent effort toward completing applications. Many students and families are not sure how or where to begin the scholarship research and application process. The information on this webpage can be a helpful start, but be sure to utilize other resources as well. Don't limit yourself by using only a single source for scholarship information. We recommend that you begin by watching the "Tips from Counselors" video on this page.
CMHS Scholarship Application
As described above, some scholarships require a school nomination. The Cox Mill High School Scholarship Committee will select nominees from those who express interest in the scholarships listed above and submit their materials by the designated deadlines. The deadline for the CMHS Scholarship Application is a rolling deadline, but students who wish to be considered for all should submit prior to September 28, 2020. Here is a list of the materials students will need to upload when completing the application:
- Current Photo
- Resume (1 page)
- Personal Essay (1-2 page personal statement...your story, beliefs, goals, etc.)
- Financial Need Statement (optional)
CMHS Scholarship Database
Some scholarship providers share information with our school. When these opportunities are shared with us, we pass the information along to students via a scholarship database. We are happy to provide this service, but we caution students and parents about the limited nature of this list. Mutliple sources for scholarship information are strongly advised so students and families have a broad base of knowledge and opportunities from which they are drawing.
