Hi everybody,
Now that the March 1st deadline for University scholarships has passed, you will be receiving regular Teams messages on Scholarship opportunities as they become available. These will go out to you as I receive them (NOT in order of due date, so pay attention) and they will be posted on the JMH Guidance page Guidance | James M. Hill High School ( as well.
Once we move into the month of April, you will also be able to access the JMH Internal Scholarship application - which is completed online and contains 35+ local scholarship/bursaries in ONE easy application.
Back in the fall (and reposted again in December and January), I posted the Projected Scholarships pdf which lists external scholarships by month. This information is still applicable today, although some deadlines would have passed by now. Please review this information as well as any NEW scholarship opportunities that I send your way.
Graduation Season is coming!
