Due to School Closure/Hybrid Schedule
With school operating on a hybrid schedule, we are coordinating scholarship applications through email. For letters of recommendation for scholarships, please email your teachers or counselor and request that they update their letter (Addressing the letter Dear Scholarship Committee and removing any part specifically about college admissions). Please make your teacher aware of the deadline. Your teacher can email Mrs. Kasian (firstname.lastname@example.org) the recommendation letter and she will add them to any of the scholarships that you apply for. We will have all students scan their completed applications and email them to Mrs. Kasian so that she can attach a transcript from PowerSchool to your application and then email it to the scholarship organization.
If you do not have access to a scanner, you can use a free scanning app, but be aware that many apps are only free temporarily and offer paid subscriptions after that time. Photographs of an application are also acceptable, just please be sure to include all of the information in the picture.
For scholarships that you apply for online or through a website, students can request that Mrs. Kasian or their Guidance Counselor email them a copy of their transcript in a pdf.file and students can use that to attach to their online applications.
This page features scholarship opportunities for Steinert students. Additional information about the scholarships can be found in the PDF files below.
