|BHS SCHOLARSHIP APPLICATION PROCESS|
|Most scholarship applications require an official high school transcript and a teacher and/or counselor letter of recommendation. For transcripts to be considered “Official” they must be received directly from the school in a sealed envelope. Since most scholarships require this along with the scholarship application it makes most sense to mail it all together as a complete package. Therefore, all scholarship applications should be mailed directly through the Counseling Office. This will also cut down on the overuse of paper and envelopes.Please use the procedures below when applying for scholarships:
SCHOLARSHIPS RECEIVED IN GUIDANCE OFFICE
