Welcome to Olathe Public Schools’ scholarship site! We hope you find this site useful.
- Scholarships are available to Olathe high school seniors from a variety of sources – local, state, regional, and national. Scholarships may be sponsored by civic organizations, business and industry, higher education programs, departments, and institutions as well as private and public foundations.
- Students are encouraged to check this site regularly for scholarship information. Due dates/deadlines must be honored.
- Students should work closely with their counselor regarding the necessary documentation requested by the various scholarships.
- Students should read scholarship requirements carefully and fully adhere to those requirements
- Preparing a well-written essay is one key to a successful application. Students should work closely with their English/Language Arts teacher to prepare the best writing they are capable of producing for this purpose. Many revisions may be necessary.
