Scholarship Opportunities for the Class of 2022
You can download scholarship applications directly from this page.
Welcome to the site for scholarship opportunities for the class of 2021. Scholarships are arranged by category. These categories will include scholarships awarded solely to Nyack High School students, Rockland County and neighboring county scholarships, New York State scholarships, and National scholarships. The National scholarships have the earliest deadlines, mostly in October and November.
The bulk of the scholarship deadlines are between February and May, but do not neglect to look for deadlines as early as October through January as we have a few sizable ones. If you are planning on studying Engineering, Nursing, Education, Business, or are a Volunteer Firefighter, there are scholarships specifically for these areas of study.
Many scholarships require a resume, so this is a good time to start yours. If you do not have paid work experience, you can list volunteer positions and sport teams that you are involved with. You will almost always be requested to include a transcript and a recommendation. Please see your guidance counselor for these items and they will direct you accordingly.
The Guidance Department at Nyack High School hosts a scholarship awards night each year in June to recognize and award scholarships to all winners.
Deadlines for submission of applications are firm and late submissions will not be accepted by the guidance department or our donors.
A final thought, scholarship submissions should be filled out in a professional manner. DO NOT submit a scholarship application written in pencil or colored ink. If you need a pen with blue ink, we have enough pens to supply you with one. Don't be shy. Good Luck!
