Scholarship Opportunities

STEM Scholarship

  • Five $1,000 scholarships will be awarded to Shenandoah seniors who apply and demonstrate an excitement for pursuing a STEM related field of study at the collegiate level.  
  • The rubric used for scoring applicants will also include academic achievement (emphasis), "whole person concept" (emphasis), and financial need (less emphasis).     

Tayton Hupp Golden Heart Scholarship Fund

In honor of Shenandoah Elementary student Tayton Hupp, who tragically lost his life in a shooting accident, a Golden Heart scholarship fund has been established.  This funding for this scholarship is from donations by Tayton’s family members, 4-H members donating a portion of their livestock sales, and other community members/organizations making anonymous donations.  Two $500 scholarships will be awarded, one to a male student and one to a female student, who are voted on by their peers to have a “golden heart”.  The scholarship can be used by Shenandoah seniors for any career pathway expenses whether it be college expenses or expenses for any advanced certification needed to enter the workforce after graduation.

1. Print off and fill out the premade note on this page to send to school with your child.
2. Send in a written note, in the same format as what is shown, on a piece of paper bigger than a sticky note. 

Thank you in advance for your help!
