There are three reasons you'll love our new scholarship application process:

1. Online scholarship application for West Valley Dollars for Scholars.

The new online process means we can do away with paper scholarship applications for good - and you can do all of your applying online! All you need to do is create your personal Student Profile! You'll fill in all the same basic information as you would on a paper scholarship application, and you'll be able to store and update things like your GPA, extracurricular activities and letters of recommendation throughout your high school and college career-which means you'll only have to fill it out once, for potentially multiple opportunities!

2. One Student Profile -  LOTS of applications!

By filling out a Student Profile, you'll see any and all of our chapter's awards that you qualify for - and you can apply for them by answering just a few additional questions with a couple of clicks! And that's not all! Across the nation, Scholarship America, our parent organization, is working with partners to add new scholarships to the scholarship database. Any time your profile matches the criteria for a new scholarship, no matter who's giving it out or where it's from, you'll be able to apply without filling out anything else!! This means lots of opportunities for nationally offered scholarships plus all of our local scholarships!!

IMPORTANT!!!

You will need to return and check your dashboard FREQUENTLY as new scholarships become available on an on-going basis. We do not want you to miss out on any opportunities!

West Valley Dollars for Scholars Application Guidelines:
 
 Scholarship Application Period Opens
January 2 and Closes at 11:59pm March 7, 2019
  • Applicant must be a West Valley High School senior "on track" to receive a diploma from West Valley High School.  
  • Recipients may choose to attend an accredited public or private two-year or four-year college or a vocational school anywhere in the United States.
  • Most awards are $1,000 or greater depending on the source of the specific scholarship.
  • Scholarships are paid directly to the school, not the student.  
  • Awards must be used within two years of high school graduation.

The selection process is objective and non-discriminatory. Applicants receive points for class ranking, teacher appraisal, work, school and community activities, national test scores, and two short essays of 300 words or less. Applications are scored electronically.  Two selected community members score the essay portion of the applications independently. All the sections are totaled for a final score.  The total score is based on all the information submitted, so it is in the student's best interest to fill out the application completely. It is important for the student to choose his or her teacher appraisal person as soon as possible to give her or him ample opportunity to respond.

This secure web portal will allow you to complete your student profile/application on-line and apply for local, and some national scholarships, in one easy on-line application. Through this portal, Scholarship America notifies students of available scholarships that fit their profile.
