January 18, 2017

Students who are graduates of CHRHS (or even CRHS) may apply for the following scholarships.  More may be available online or may be added to this page later.

March 2, 2017

The fillable version of the 2017 Post Graduate Scholarship Application is being updated.  Please be patient as we work to get it fixed.  Thank you!

Instructions for the Post Graduate Scholarship Packet  

Using the CHRHS POST-GRADUATE Scholarship Application:  When a scholarship requires the CHRHS Scholarship Application, please send in a separate application packet for each Scholarship. The  2017 PG Scholarship Application is available as a FILLABLE PDF.  (You will need the free Adobe Reader program to fill the form in digitally. It will not work in Preview or via the web.)  This means, for any scholarship that takes the CHRHS Scholarship Application, you can type in your personal information once, then print out copies for the number of scholarships you are applying for. For example, if you are applying for three scholarships that require the CHRHS Scholarship Application, you will send in three packets, each containing:

1) A copy of the your completed 2017 PG Scholarship Application (be sure to include the name of the scholarship you are applying for at the bottom.

2) Letter of Recommendation

3) Current Transcript

***Many scholarships that do NOT use the CHRHS Application may be available electronically.  These are included below with links to the application for you to download. Others will need to be picked up in the school counseling office.  The office is open Monday through Friday from 7:00 am until 3:00 pm.  Please be sure to use the deadline on the actual
