2020 NOSC SCHOLARSHIP APPLICATION - Current High School Senior
Napoli Operational Support Club (NOSC) scholarships are made possible through NOSC sponsored activities and charitable donations as defined in the NOSC By-Laws. The Scholarship Committee reviews submissions, determines applicant eligibility and applies rubrics to the application package. The rubric criteria includes a combination of GPA, advanced courses, extracurricular activities, work and volunteer experience, leadership, awards and personal essay. Financial need is NOT factored into award consideration.
The Scholarship Committee is an independent panel of judges comprised of volunteer military spouses of the Naples community. Judges are screened for potential conflict of interest and their dependents are not eligible to apply for a scholarship. Student identity is maintained anonymous throughout the judging and award determination process. The only member of the NOSC Governing Board involved in the independent judging process is the Scholarship Chair. Submission of an application does not guarantee receipt of a scholarship.
To be eligible for the scholarship you must meet the following criteria:
A full scholarship is defined as one that provides for payment of tuition, books, fees and/or qualified expenses. The awards cannot be deferred for future use: the awards must be used for educational expenses incurred during the 2020-2021 academic year. UNUSED FUNDS MUST BE RETURNED TO NOSC.
Please retain this page and a copy of your application for your records. All completed applications (with required attachments) must be submitted to the Naples Middle High School Counseling Office by 1500 on Friday, 27 March 2020. Late and/or incomplete applications will not be considered.
