Six $3,500 a year scholarships are awarded annually to Highland County High School seniors. Scholarships are renewable for a four-year period upon evidence that a 2.0 average is maintained.

Scholarships are awarded on the basis of academic achievement, personal qualifications and stated goals and objectives. The final applicants are interviewed by a three-person screening committee before the committee awards the scholarships.

Students can receive information about the scholarship from their school counselor.
