Seniors, paying for college is expensive so it is important to take advantage of any scholarship opportunity you can, especially when it is only available to South High Seniors. The Senior Honorarium is a competitive scholarship opportunity given in honor of former Wichita High School South staff members to current seniors who qualify and apply. Amounts vary between $250 to $300, and each applicant is evaluated on academic rigor, GPA, extracurricular activities, and an essay. Additionally, students who have obligations will NOT be eligible.
If you are interested, you can pick up an application from any office or the CCC room B6. The completed applications are due to Ms. Kiser in B2 or Ms. Bell in B6 by March 12.
