Scholarships

CSI Scholarship

For graduating seniors of Scottsbluff High School

Three separate scholarships designated A, B, and C, will be awarded annually.  Applications should be submitted to the Scottsbluff High School Counseling Office.  Deadline for application and supporting documents is February 15th.  Winner and alternates will be selected.

​Attach copy of official ACT/SAT, high school transcript, and three reference letters.  Final grades for senior year are not required.  Recipients are responsible for forwarding college transcripts to OTCF within three (3) weeks of the end of each grading period and must notify OTCF of any address changes.  Failure to send transcripts jeopardizes scholarship renewal.  Scholarships are paid directly to the school.  If the required college GPA is not maintained, or the student is not enrolled full-time (beginning the first semester for which the scholarship is awarded), the renewal opportunity will be forfeited.  The scholarship may be rescinded and awarded to the alternate.
