Seniors, apply now for the Worthing Scholarship

The Worthing Scholarships were established by the will of Evan Edward Worthing and provide college scholarships for graduates of HISD high schools. The students who receive these scholarships are selected by the Worthing Scholarship Selection Committee, which consists of designated principals of HISD high schools.

The students are chosen from among those who would not otherwise financially be able to secure a college education or could do so only with difficulty. They are also selected on the basis of need, qualities of leadership, scholastic ability, intelligence, diligence and general character, which indicate to the committee that they can best profit for themselves and the community by the educational opportunities which the scholarship will provide.

The deadline to apply is 4 p.m. Friday, April 16. Students must apply online, as no handwritten applications will be accepted.
