The application deadline has passed for some scholarships, but many are still open. Among them is a $500.00 scholarship from the FirstHealth Montgomery Memorial Hospital Auxiliary, awarded to an East or West Montgomery High School graduate with a minimum 3.0 grade point average who plans to pursue a career in health care.

The Signet Classics Student Scholarship will award $1,000.00 in an essay contest centered on George Orwell’s “1984”, and the North Carolina Society of Accountants will grant $600.00 to a student planning a career in accounting.

A number of other scholarships still open offer specific opportunities for a variety of students, including those who have a spinal cord injury, those interested in the strawberry industry, and those with equestrian experience.

A complete list of available scholarships is available from the Guidance Counselors at both high schools or by phone at 910-576-6511.
