Eligibility for all PTO Scholarships:

  1. Paid membership dues to PTO for each year of student’s career at Holliston High School.  If your family is not a PTO member this year your parent can join by following the instructions on the membership page.  The PTO Scholarship Committee will confirm your paid membership status for each of the years you attended HHS. If it is determined there are any years that you were not a member, we will contact you to give you the opportunity to bring your membership status up to date so that you may be considered for the PTO scholarships.
  2. The graduating senior is continuing his/her education full time in the fall.
  3. Verification from HHS administration and guidance that the applicant is in good academic and civic standing by providing your transcript. (This will be completed by PTO Scholarship Committee.)

*If you are applying for the Essay Scholarship, please answer the following prompt and return your essay and application to HHS Guidance by all deadlines presented by the guidance office. Do not include your name at the top of the written essay page so that submissions can remain anonymous..

Prompt: Some students have a background, identity, interest, or talent that is so meaningful they believe their application would be incomplete without it. If this sounds like you, then please share your story. (650 word limit)
