Scholarship brainstorming activity to do with family and friends:
START NOW!!!

Make a list of everywhere you do business; banks, credit unions, grocery stores, insurance companies, etc. List everywhere you or your family members work or from where they have retired. List all of your favorite activities (turkey hunting, fishing, photography, motocross, skateboarding, etc.). To what organizations do you or your family members belong (Elks, Rotary, NRA, Kiwanis, etc.)? What are your attributes (tall, left-handed, blue-eyed, Irish)? For every answer on that list do an internet search that says, "scholarship for _____________" and fill in the blank with each answer. Check the websites for all of the organizations and businesses. Almost everyone gives some type of scholarship, you just have to have the tenacity to look for them.

The St. Hugh Scholarship is presented by the members of St. Hugh who believe that education is one of the most important factors in human development and that education beyond high school provides valuable resources for success in life.

The two Scholarships are presented annually to deserving students selected by the Scholarship Committee of St. Hugh and Pritchard family members.

Application for the Scholarships can be made by downloading the Application Form. It can be filled out on your computer or printed and filled in by typewriter or by hand.
