  • ​Scholarship Tips for the Month of January 2018

Many of the scholarships due in January are from programs that have frequently awarded AC Reynolds students with scholarships. Programs such as the GE Regan, Asheville Civitan, the Iona M. Allen, the Mars Hill Bonner, scholarships sponsored by The Community Foundation of Western North Carolina and Lenior-Rhynes' Teaching scholarship have all either been awarded to our applicants in the past, or applicants have advanced to finals. Please pay particular attention to eligibility critieria, application requirements and deadlines. Reynolds students are extremly competitive for these programs. It does take time to complete these applications but a large percentage of our students who strategically pursue a number of scholarships in their senior year end up with awards. If you are in doubt about whether or not to pursue scholarships and have questions, do not hesitate to see your counselor and/or Ms. McCreary.
