Scholarships are available to students at MHS at the local, regional, and national level. Money is generally awarded on the basis of academic achievement, other achievements within school or outside of school, or by special circumstances. Financial need is sometimes a consideration.
Please note, if you need a counselor's signature on a scholarship application, confirmation of GPA or rank, or any other form of short documentation, please bring the form to Mrs. Burkhart a minimum of 48 hours ahead of time. Also, if your scholarship application requires an official transcript, you will need to have all your documents together and placed in a postage paid envelope (do not seal the envelope). Bring that envelope to Mrs. Burkhart two weeks prior to the scholarship due date in order for it to be mailed. This includes scholarships with specific postmark dates.
For questions regarding scholarships, please contact Jeanna Carlson, School Counselor and Scholarship Coordinator, at firstname.lastname@example.org or (715) 387-4332 x 5.
*Many local scholarship applications are in Google Doc format. Students must be logged in with their school Google Account to access them.
We encourage all students and families to apply for financial aid through the FAFSA (Free Application for Student Aid). Many scholarships rely on the EFC (Expected Family Contribution) number to determine financial need, and will ask for that information on their applications. If you have any questions about FAFSA as it relates to scholarships, please contact Mrs. Carlson.
