High School Students
GCSF created the Scholarship Planner to help high school students prepare for scholarship applications. All incoming High School Freshman will receive a Scholarship Planner with their registration materials. Finding ways to pay for higher education can be a daunting task. GCSF hopes to simplify the process of completing general scholarship applications and GCSF Scholarship applications by providing students with a planner designed to record academics, in and out of school activities, co-op participation, volunteerism, and employment history. Printing of the Scholarship Planners was funded by Dental Professionals. Copies of the planner are available in the Germantown High School Guidance office, at Dental Professionals and on this Web site.
