APS COLLEGE SCHOLARSHIP DETAILS
The APS College Scholarship is available only to 12th grade students
currently enrolled in APS and in good standing.
It is awarded at the June Promotion Celebration
APS College Scholarship Deadline: April Workshop
(no late applications accepted beyond workshop).
Application for the APS College Scholarship must be made no earlier than
Feb 15 and no later than the April Workshop.
There is NO application form.
There are required application items. (see below)
All items must be submitted together in a large envelope.
Envelopes that are missing one or more application items will not be considered.
Write the applicant's first and last name on the front of the envelope.
If you need an application item from the APS office (e.g. GPA, CUM, SAT scores), you need to request it in writing, via US Post, with SASE, at least two weeks prior to the deadline. A 'quick turn-around fee' of $10 applies for requests made less than two weeks prior to the deadline. The APS Office will NOT automatically include SAT scores, GPA, etc. for you.
The APS Office actually never opens your application envelope. Your application items are copied by APS Board members (without your names) and the copies are forwarded to the Scholarship panel of judges.
To be considered for the APS College Scholarship APS seniors must supply all of the following items (no more, no less):
Copy of SAT (or ACT) test score sheet.
