The 2020 Application Cycle ended on February 21, 2020 and applications are being reviewed.
The Kirkwood School District Foundation Named Award Scholarship Program applications are processed via an online Google Form.
An application will not be considered complete unless all three steps below are completed and the required documentation is received. Please allow yourself plenty of time to complete the application, to avoid last minute surprises.
1. Scholarship Application: Apply here using the online Google Form. (Note: if you entered this website from a Facebook link, you may need to re-type www.ksdfscholarships.org into a separate browser link to reach the Google Form application page.)
2. Supporting Documentation: The following documents must be uploaded in the application. Please inform us if you cannot upload your documents.
1) Digital photograph,
2) Unofficial transcript,
4) Personal Essay. (Please include why you are qualified for the specific award or awards that you have applied for.)
For those applying to the Herb Jones Memorial Scholarship, you will also need to submit an example of your journalism work and a short statement regarding your plans if you were to become Mayor of Kirkwood.
3. Letter(s) of Recommendation: The selection committee must also receive at least one but not more than two recommendation letters for your application to be considered complete. It is your responsibility to inform those submitting a recommendation letter on your behalf to email it to firstname.lastname@example.org by midnight on Friday, February 21, 2020.Word or pdf files are the preferred format, and the file name should include your first and last name (For example, Sally Smith_Recommendation Letter_1).
Once the application process closes on February 21, 2020, the KSDF Named Awards Scholarship Committee will review all applications and documentation.
Interviews will be determined based on the total number of applications received. A completed application does not guarantee an interview, and the KSDF Named Awards Committee reserves the right to make interview selections. If selected for an interview, you will be contacted by the KHS Guidance office to sign up for an interview time (these will take place during school hours in the Pioneer Conference Room). If you are not selected for an interview, you will receive notification via email. Interviews will occur in late March. Music auditions and and Art portfolio reviews will occur in April. Award selections will be made in late April and announced by the first Tuesday in May.
