The Spencer Community School Foundation is proud to announce scholarships for graduating seniors. Scholarships are open to SHS seniors who plan on continuing their education. Thousands of scholarship dollars will be awarded to many graduating seniors this year because of generous contributions made to the Foundation through bequests, memorials and cash gifts in honor or memory of a loved one. Last year the Foundation awarded over $59,000 to 62 students. Since 2000, over $900,000 has been awarded to more than 1075 students in the form of scholarships. Foundation scholarships are open to all seniors who will receive a diploma from Spencer High School this academic year.

The Foundation offers over 70 individual scholarships each year.

All seniors have received information in the mail on how to apply. To request an application form, please email from your student email account. Applications are in Google docs format. Descriptions of scholarships that are available were included in the information sent to students the end of October or students may request a copy of descriptions by emailing the Foundation from their student email account.

The deadline to submit or drop off completed application is Thursday, December 14, 2017, 4:00 p.m. at the Foundation office located in the Central Administration Building at 23 East 7th Street, PO Box 200, Spencer, IA 51301.

Presentation of the Spencer Community School Foundation Scholarships will be at a ceremony to be held Sunday, March 18, 2018. Scholarship recipients must attend the Scholarship Ceremony to receive a scholarship. Students who will be awarded scholarships will be notified by the first of March 2018.

If you are interested in establishing a scholarship in honor of someone or would like to contribute toward an existing scholarship, please contact Tammy Higgins or Mary Frank at 712-262-8950 or email
