Apply now


It’s the beginning of April and that means graduation for seniors is only 9 weeks away.
Now is the time for seniors to apply for scholarships.
CHS has provided four easy steps to help students access money to help pay for higher education. These are explained on the 2016 CHS Scholarship Info page posted on the CHS website.
Students can access that page by going to the CHS website and clicking on About Us and then Scholarships and Prizes. A link to the page was also included in recent Crimson Notes.
Excerpts from the page include the following:
Step 1: Complete the online CHS E-CommonApp. This puts the applicants in the running for about sixty individual scholarships ranging from $100 to $4,000. This application is due May 3, 2016.
Step 2: Complete the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation (NHCF) online application by 5 p.m. Friday, April 15. In 2013, CHS seniors received a total of $51,000 by just applying to NHCF using their form.
Step 3: Review all non-CommonApp scholarships.
Step 4: Pursue relevant national scholarships.
Financial aid is also available through NHCF to seniors who may not have earned excellent grades but still want to attend a two-year technical school like NHTI or a four-year degree program.
Career Aid is a scholarship for anyone between the ages of 17-23 who has a high school diploma or a GED equivalent and plans planning to attend a two-year or short term training program.
The Statewide Student Aid Program is open to similar students enrolling in a four-year degree program.
Applications for Career Aid are due 5 p.m. Wednesday, June 15, 2016. Applications for the Statewide Student Aid Program are due 5 p.m. Friday, April 15.
Those with  questions about scholarships can contact Assistant Principal Steve Rothenberg (srothenbe[email protected]) or his assistant, Kathly Lavoie ([email protected]).
Higher education is too important to not think about. The wage gap between employees who graduated high school and their counterparts can run to thousands of dollars per year. That’s the difference between pinching every penny just to make it by and being able to pay expenses with ease.
