Scholarship Information

Seniors and Parents are encouraged to stop by the Scholarship Center in the School Counseling Office to search for scholarship opportunities. The attached document contains a list of all scholarships that are currently available in the Scholarship Center. Many of the scholarships listed will have direct links to the online application. Scholarships that are not available online are available under the Document Manager tab to the left.

Scholarship Spreadsheet

Scholarships are also posted on the School Counseling Twitter page. Make sure to follow us @NKHSCounseling so you don't miss any of the scholarships!

When you receive a scholarship, whether from a college, school, community, or other sponsor, you should notify the School Counseling Department as soon as possible. All scholarship recipients are recognized at the Senior Scholarship Ceremony and in the Graduation Program. The Senior Scholarship Ceremony is held in late May of each year.  We cannot recognize you if we do not know about your awards!  

Did you know that we have a financial aid counselor who comes twice a month, Mrs. Williams, who welcomes meeting with parents/guardians and students on financial aid matters?  Call or come by the office to sign up to see her!
