Sweetwater Union High School District Seniors  Deadline Approaching

CVGS is presenting a $500 Scholarship Application for graduating Seniors to work on for this year. It involves more work than in the past but we think it
will expand their horizons and help them to understand the world better.

The students are to interview a Veteran of the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, Coast Guard, Reserves, or National Guard, they can be from foreign countries. 

The Veterans can be a family member, neighbor, teacher, friend or stranger. Students are to use the format we are inclosing to accomplish this goal.

We are requesting that when the application is completed, the student brings it back to the Counselor by 15 March 2016. We will pick up the Application, the day after the Applications are turned into the Office on 16 March 2016.

The Applications will be judged by members of the Scholarship Committee. We have a point system we use to judge the Applications: 
1. follow the rules given and 
2. accomplishing the Applications goals.

It is judged on the quality of the students work. This Scholarship is not linked to academic or test scores. The Scholarship is intended to supplement the students’ Educational goals.
