Local Tomball Scholarships will be coming Spring 2019.  There is something for everyone!  Please make sure that you apply for all that you are eligible for.  Don't procrastinate and miss deadlines. 
 
Tips:
  • Make a list of the scholarships you're going to apply for (print a copy of the Quick Reference Guide to help!)
  • Print the checklist for each scholarship you're applying for so that you can keep track of what needs to be submitted
  • Does the scholarship require an official transcript? Make a list of how many you need and order them by March 19th
  • Make a list of how may Confidential Student Evaluation Forms you'll need and ask you teachers to complete them for you early
    • If you already have letters of recommendation from teachers, you submit those instead
  • Submit your applications before the deadline!
 
 

General Information

Most of the Local Tomball Scholarships use the same application (TISD Local Scholarship Application).  There are three parts to the application. Not all scholarships require all three parts.  Make sure you submit the correct parts.  The parts needed will be listed in the Requirements section under the scholarship description.
 
TISD Local Scholarship Application Parts:  SEE LINKS TO FILES BELOW
  • Academic and Personal  
  • Extracurricular and Volunteer Activities
  • Financial Information
 
 
 
 

Confidential Student Evaluation Form

 
Confidential Student Evaluation Forms are basically teacher letters of recommendation.  You may submit the evaluation form OR a letter of recommendation from your teachers.  Do you need evaluations for multiple scholarships?  Ask your teachers to make several copies for you. It's not necessary to use different teachers for each of your applications.
 
 
 
 
 

Local Tomball Scholarships Begin Below

Keep checking back, scholarships will be released mid-February 2019

Directions:
1. Read each scholarship description. 
2. If you'r eligible, see the link to the printable checklist or printable application. You'll be able to print the description and checklist for yourself.
3.  If the scholarship requires parts of the TISD Local Scholarship Application, the links are located above.  They're fillable documents.  You'll complete them, save, and print the number that you need.
4.  If a scholarship requires a Confidential Student Evaluation Form, the link is also above.  If you need some for multiple scholarships, you can ask teachers for the number of copies that you need.  Ex:  Two of your scholarships require two Confidential Student Evaluation Forms. Ask two teachers for two copies each instead of asking four different teachers.  
5.  Make sure to order any transcripts you need early. Transcripts can be ordered from the front desk.  $2 for official, $1 for unofficial. Make sure you order a paper copy of the official - do not open! 
6. Staple all parts of the application together for submission.  Some like to use folders or large envelopes to keep everything neat.
7. There will be labeled buckets in Cougar Corner to turn in applications.  Please place them face down.
 
Let me know if you have any questions! 
 
 
 
 
Below are the 2019 Local Scholarships for seniors.  Good luck!
