NAHS Scholarship Program for Seniors


NAHS Scholarship Program for Seniors - 2018


STUDENT/PARENT OVERVIEW & INSTRUCTIONS

FOR THE NAHS SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM FOR THE CLASS OF 2018 SENIORS


With the generous help and expertise of Christopher McClure, Director of Information Technology for the Town of North Andover, the NAHS Guidance Department presents its on-line Scholarship Program for the Class of 2018 Seniors using PeopleForms.

Our Scholarship Program will be accessible to North Andover High School seniors from Friday, February 16, 2018 until Monday, March 19, 2018 at 6:00 pm, at which time the link to the program will be taken off-line.  Please note that recipients of these scholarships will be revealed at our annual Scholarship Knight for Seniors reception and ceremony at the high school, scheduled for the evening of  Wednesday, June 6, 2018.

There are three categories of scholarships in our program -  Sections A, B and C.

Section A scholarship recipients will be selected by the NAHS Guidance Scholarship Committee based on specific criteria provided by each donor and posted under the scholarship description.

Section B and C scholarship recipients are selected by the donors, based on the specific criteria also posted under each scholarship description.  

TRANSCRIPT REQUESTS

Several of our scholarships require a transcript.  Please email Dianne Stevens at stevensd@nak12.com or Debbie Conti at contid@nak12.com for an electronic copy of your transcript in PDF format.  

Note that all transcript requests must be made through email.  When you receive your transcript, save it to your desktop as a PDF and use it when asked to upload a transcript for Section B or C scholarships.


Requests for transcripts will be accepted between February 16, 2018 and March 16, 2018 only.  We will try to fulfill your request within 24 hours.

KEEP THE TRANSCRIPT IN PDF FORMAT,  DO NOT CHANGE IT TO ANOTHER FORMAT.

If you have any questions about our scholarship program, please contact Dianne Stevens at stevensd@nak12.com  or Debbie Conti at contid@nak12.com.



THERE ARE FOUR MAIN STEPS IN OUR SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM - PLEASE READ CAREFULLY


To access the program go to the following webpage.


https://sites.google.com/a/northandoverpublicschools.com/scholarships/


STEP 1:  

  • Use the link "NAPS - NAHS Scholarship List" in blue to the LEFT of the webpage to research the scholarships that interest you.


  • Click the black bar for Sections A, B, and C drop down menus.

  • Click on the icon to get detailed information on each scholarship including a description and the basis for which recipients will be selected.

  • Write down the names of the scholarships for which you are eligible and would like to apply.  This will save you time.

  • Note that some scholarships have additional requirements such as essays, transcripts, resumes and recommendations. There will be instructions on how to upload these documents on each scholarship application requiring them.
     

STEP 2:


  • Use the link "NAHS Scholarship Student Information" in blue to the right of the webpage to complete your student information section.  All of the information in this form will pre-populate to all of the scholarship applications you select.

  • Click on the black bar to access the Student Information Form. This step only needs to be done once.

STEP 3:  


  • BEFORE you press the "Submit" button at the bottom of the Student Information Form you will be required to enter a PIN #.  We recommend using the last four digits of your social security # so it is easy to remember.  If you do not have a social security #, enter any four digits, and write them down so you remember them.  

  • Once you have submitted the NAHS Scholarship Student Information Form you will receive an email with a personal link to your information record.  This link will allow you to return and start applying for scholarships and manage your applications at any time.


  • Please make sure you save and bookmark this link.


  • Proceed to Step 4.


STEP 4:

  • To start applying for the scholarships, go to the bookmarked link you received in your email.

  • From the drop down menu, click on the first scholarship you would like to apply to.  


  • Each scholarship has different requirements, so you must apply for them one at a time.

  • Click on the  icon and the scholarship application you chose will appear.

  • Any field with an * is a required field.  If you do not complete the field, you will not be able to submit your application.

  • For those scholarships that require additional documents (i.e. transcript, resume, essay etc.), there will be an "Upload" button to upload a PDF of these items.  Again, if you do not upload the required documents you will not be able to apply for the scholarship you have selected.

  • If you have created your documents in Google Docs, please convert them to a PDF in your Google Drive before uploading.   Go to "File", click on "Download as" and then click on PDF.  You can then upload the PDF to your application.

  • Once your application is complete, click on the "Signature" button at the bottom of the page.
    You will need to re-validate your PIN # each time you apply or update a scholarship.

  • Don't forget to press "Submit".

  • The scholarships you apply for will appear under the heading, "My Scholarship Applications".  To view a submitted application click on the  icon next to the scholarship name.

  • To apply for additional scholarships, go back to the Scholarship drop-down menu and repeat instructions under Step 4.


NOTES:  

  • Each time you apply for a new scholarship you will receive a confirmation email that your application was successfully submitted.

  • If you want to make changes to an application you previously submitted, return to your personal link, click on the scholarship name, make the changes, and click on "Update".  Your changes will be automatically updated in your application.
