View 2019 Scholarship Recipients HERE
For more than 80 years, the Mothers’ Club has been awarding college scholarships to deserving seniors at South. In 2018, we gave out a total of 88 scholarships totaling more than $56,200, including both Mothers’ Club funds and community and private funds. Our scholarship recipients attend colleges and universities throughout the country.
Mothers’ Club scholarships are based on both financial need and academic merit. Students must fill out an application (available late January 2019 in the Counseling Center or online from the Mothers’ Club link on the South Web), and be interviewed by the Mothers’ Club Scholarship Committee.
We also administer scholarships from various community groups. Some groups provide specific guidelines and criteria to aid the selection process; others leave the selection entirely up to the Mothers’ Club committee. Some donors ask us to “screen” applicants based on specific criteria and then they choose from this shortened list of applicants.
Scholarship recipients receive their awards at a very special Mothers’ Club Scholarship Awards Night, held in May at the school. Each donor is recognized individually on stage and in all printed and promotional materials. In many cases, a representative from the donor business or family is on hand to present the award personally.
