Welcome to the Rowan-Salisbury Schools scholarship site. Included within this site are yearly scholarships. Although some deadlines have passed, we encourage students and parents to review the types of scholarships, which are available. Scholarships with current deadlines will be listed at the top. We encourage students to begin looking at these scholarships throughout high school to see the types of requirements necessary to compete for these scholarships. Please see your school counselors for assistance with scholarships now and in the future.
Any interested student will need to write a short letter to the PTA Council on how they feel the PTA has contributed to their education. The scholarship amount is $200.00. The letters can be sent to the attention of Patty Overcash at the Ellis Street office.
