University of Rochester High School Awards Program: Each year, participating high schools may nominate up to four qualified students, one student for each award. All nominees will have their application fee waived and will be eligible to be considered for merit scholarships worth at least $10,000 per year.
Participation in these programs is open to all secondary schools. The final deadline for nominations to be submitted is June 15, 2017. For awards to be delivered in time for April awards ceremonies, we recommend nominations be received by March 15, 2017. All award packets will be mailed directly to the award nominator at their high school. Please allow at least two weeks between the date of nomination and delivery to your school. If you have any questions, please contact the High School Awards Program Manager at firstname.lastname@example.org or at (585) 275-3221, toll free at (888) 822-2256.
