The Foundation manages and awards several scholarships to graduating seniors each year. These scholarships are distributed in May at recognition ceremonies and graduations.  When searching for Foundation scholarships, students should review each of the following sections: the district wide scholarships, rotating scholarships, and the scholarship opportunities specific to the graduate’s school. Scholarship guidelines and applications are available for download here.

All scholarship applications must be submitted to your school counselor, not the Foundation office. For more information on scholarships contact your school counselor.

Scholarship Opportunities for Students

For Students: READ ALL THE INSTRUCTIONS BELOW BEFORE SUBMITTING ANY SCHOLARSHIP

  1. All scholarships must be submitted to your high school counselor.
  2. Before you apply for a scholarship read the requirement checklist carefully to make sure you meet the criteria and eligibility. If you do not meet the criteria, do not apply for that scholarship.
  3. You must complete a separate application for each scholarship you apply for. (NOTE: Pages 1-5 of Foundation scholarship applications may remain the same. Just change the name of the scholarship you are applying for, for each application.)
  4. Please make sure that you use your essay to address why you applied for the scholarship and how you meet the criteria. (IMPORTANT: If you are submitting more than one FSPS scholarship application, we recommend writing a different essay per application.)
  5. Check the school section of the scholarship page to see a list of scholarships available at your school and deadlines for those scholarships.
  6. District wide scholarships are open to students from any SPS high school who meet the requirements of those scholarships.
  7. Rotating scholarships will have the school name listed next to the title.
  8. If you are a student at OTC Middle College, Vo-Tech, or Study you may apply for scholarships available at your sender/home school and those applications should be turned in to that school.
  9. If you are a family member of a Foundation for Springfield Public Schools employee, a committee member, or a substantial contributor to the scholarship, you are not eligible to apply for that scholarship.
  10. Scholarship amounts are based on available earnings and are subject to change.
