The number of scholarships available will be dependent upon the amount of contributions from teachers like you. Scholarships will be awarded based upon academic merit and economic need.
Application materials submitted by eligible students will be screened by the teachers that comprise the KHSTSA Board of Directors. Scholarship recipients will be announced during the spring semester of each school year.
