All Graduating Seniors/Class of 2022 --
The application for more than 125 scholarships thru the Denton Public School Foundation is now available. Please read all of the instructions before submitting the single application for all scholarships.
Application - Deadline January 31, 2022 at 11:59pm, no exceptions
We are excited to partner with Kaleidoscope for our scholarship application this year. What does this mean? First, it means that you will not have to complete your application in one sitting like has been done in years past. You can start it, stop it, think about it and come back to complete it in more than one session. Second, it means that when you complete our application you will be able to see other scholarships that are hosted by Kaleidoscope and possibly apply for those as well.
Unless specifically asked do not use any information that would identify yourself (name, etc.) or the school that you attend (school name, mascot, clubs, etc.) Example: say Drill Team and not Silverados, Fillies, Strutters or Royals, etc
SPELL CHECK! SPELL CHECK! GRAMMAR CHECK! SPELL CHECK! - Presentation matters and this is how you are presenting yourself to our reviewers.
When you register please use an email that you will check after graduation and not your DISD email. Often we need to contact our award winners during the summer about claiming their scholarship and we can not do that with a DISD email address after graduation. If you do not have another email there are several free services that you can use to set one up and there are links to do this in the application.
We have to say it again CHECK YOUR SPELLING AND GRAMMAR!
The last step in this part of the application will be forwarding your app to your counselor.
MAKE SURE YOU PUT THE NAME AND EMAIL THAT WE HAVE LISTED FOR EACH SCHOOL IN THE FIELDS OF THE RECOMMENDATION SECTION OR THE COUNSELOR WILL NOT GET YOUR APPLICATION! DO NOT PUT YOUR INFORMATION!
Your application will say that it is 99% complete until they finish entering the information that we have requested from them (GPA, Rank, Test Scores if available, and comments).
