Southeast Warren Scholarship Guide

Senior Scholarships
Seniors and their parents - check out scholarship information gathered by Mr. Dirkx.


SEW Scholarship Foundation

The Southeast Warren Scholarship Foundation has awarded $111,500 in scholarships to Southeast Warren students.  For the past few years, all students who applied were awarded a scholarship.  The Southeast Warren PTA scholarship is now included in the Scholarship Foundation.    

These applications are numbered and read to the Foundation members by the guidance counselor, principals, or other personnel. Foundation members give numerical scores to applications based on work experience, school and community activities, and appraisals included in the applications.  These scores are then tabulated by personnel from the local banks. Scholarships are awarded using these final tabulations. Everything remains anonymous until after all selections have been made.

The Scholarship Foundation raises money through the Country Music Shows held in the Fall and Spring, the Fourth of July Breakfast in Milo, the sale of bricks from the old elementary buildings, payroll deductions from school employees, Pennies for Scholars, Memorials, and other contributions.
