                                                   Nomination Scholarships
     The following scholarships require students to be nominated by people at the school. Because many of these require
     time, travel and large expense on the part of the student and family, we ask students to get parental approval and then
     notify the Counseling Center of their interest. Here are some of the requests we’ve received.
     William H. and Elizabeth Gray Danforth Scholars Program at Washington University in S. Louis. The University seeks candidates
     for the program who have exhibited a capacity for service and leadership, as well as academic excellence and who will
     embrace the challenges of a rigorous academic curriculum; especially qualities of maturity, strong moral character,
     selflessness and commitment to the community.

     will be held in Summer 2010. Tuition is $2,560 which includes everything except transportation to and from the program
     location (varies) and lunches during the program. Financial assistance consists of tips on fund-raising. Some financial-

     US Senate Youth Program: The contest-entry program culminates with two students being sent to an all-expense paid trip
     to Washington, D.C. for a week and a $5,000 scholarship. The program is organized and financially supported by the
     Hearst Foundation. Open to juniors and seniors who hold an elective or selective office, the entry to the program starts
     with a government quiz. The top two scorers write an essay which is submitted with application to the State Department
     of Education to be judged. Watch the school bulletin for entry quiz date!
