    Presentation For Searching For Scholarships

    • Local scholarships are sponsored by our community for Hazleton Area students that meet the criteria set by the sponsor.
    • Most scholarships are a 1-time financial award but there are some instances where some are renewable (scholarship sponsor will let you know if that is the case).
    • Scholarships are presented to students at our awards ceremony unless a sponsor decides to present the award at one of their local club meetings or at a special ceremony.
    • Please read through each scholarship and see that you have filled out and handed in all that the sponsor is requiring.
    • Feel free to contact your guidance counselor for more details.
