Senior Scholarship Program

PTSA & Booster Club Scholarship Grants

The PTSA and Booster Club will each award ONE $1000 grant and TWO $500 grants for graduating seniors attending a two- or 4-year college or university or other post-secondary program.

In order to qualify for the NWHS PTSA and/or NWHS Booster Club Scholarships you must meet the requirements listed below:
• Be a graduating Senior from Northwest High School, Class of 2025
• Have received a letter of acceptance and plan to attend a two- or four-year college or university or other post-secondary program/training
• Have completed a minimum of 100 SSL hours for PTSA scholarship; a minimum of 75 SSL hours for Booster Club scholarship
• Submit a 300- to 500-word essay based on the prompts in the application. If you are applying to both the PTSA and the Booster Club Scholarship, two essays are required.

If you meet all of the requirements above, your essays, with name redacted for anonymity, will be forwarded to the parent panel who will score all essays. The highest-scoring essays will be awarded the scholarships. The scholarships are awarded independently. Winning one does not qualify or eliminate you from the other. Feel free to apply for both!

Scholarship winners will be announced and presented at the 2025 Senior Awards Ceremony on May 22, 2025.

Application Deadline: April 22, 2025.
