Scholarships

Scholarships

A variety of scholarships are available at St. Paul High School, based on a combination of merit, service, and need. St. Paul scholarships are funded by private corporations, foundations, and individuals who are friends of the school. The criterion for awarding scholarships is defined by the donors and selections are made by the Scholarship Selection Committee in coordination with the Development Office.

It is expected that the students will remain in good academic and disciplinary standing. A student must maintain a minimum of a 2.0 GPA to qualify for a scholarship. A student may be withdrawn from the financial aid/scholarship program.Financial aid will be discontinued if tuition payments are not kept current. Families receiving financial aid will still be required to pay their portion of the tuition plus the required fees (i.e. registration fees, extracurricular fees, activity fees, mandatory parent service hours, etc.)  

 

How is a scholarship different from financial aid?

Financial aid is based on financial need. This must be demonstrated by submitting a financial aid application. A scholarship is based on merit or a combination of merit and need. A merit scholarship is offered for academic merit/service alone. A merit/need scholarship is offered based on academic merit combined with financial need.

 

How do I apply for a merit/need-based scholarship?

There are two parts to the merit/need-based scholarship application:

  1. There is no fee to apply.  In order to be considered for any financial need based scholarships, you must fill out the CEF application and provide income verification.  Click for Financial Assistance and CEF Application
  2. Submit scholarship application for students to the school office.  If your scholarship is renewable, you must reapply every year. Honors at Entrance scholarships are awarded based on the HSPT (High School Placement Test) score the student receives.  Valedictorian scholarships will be verified with the student's junior high school.
  3. Once the application is processed and all paperwork is verified the school you will be notified. You will be notified in writing by SPHS regarding your application and award status.
