AN OVERVIEW OF THE PROGRAM

With the generous help and expertise of Christopher McClure, Director of Information Technology for the Town of North Andover, the NAHS Guidance Department on-line scholarship program is available using PeopleForms.  

Highlights of the scholarship application process:

-  Students will review the scholarships in our program and determine the ones they wish to apply.  

-  They will then complete a NAHS Scholarship Student Information Form which will be used to pre-populate student data onto each scholarship application on their list. 

-  Once this form is completed, the student can then start applying to EACH scholarship they have identified.  

The program will be accessible only to North Andover High School seniors from Friday, February 16, 2018 until Monday, March 19, 2018 at 6:00 pm, at which time the link to the program will be taken off-line.

Recipients of these scholarships will be announced at our annual Scholarship Knight for seniors reception and ceremony at the high school, scheduled for Wednesday, June 6, 2018 from 6:30 - 8:30 pm.

THE SCHOLARSHIPS

There are three categories of scholarships, Sections A, B and C. 

Section A scholarship recipients will be selected by the NAHS Guidance Scholarship Committee based on specific criteria provided by each donor and posted under the scholarship description.

Section B and C scholarship recipients are selected by the donors, based on the specific criteria also posted under each scholarship description.
