  • Message from Mr. Kirkley in Counseling:

     

    Seniors,

    Dreher is fortunate to serve as a nominating school for several highly selective, substantial scholarships at prominent colleges.  For each of the scholarships below, Dreher can nominate one senior student to apply.  Remember that ideal candidates for these scholarships perform at the highest level academically and have extensive leadership, service, and extracurricular involvement.  If you are interested in serving as Dreher’s nominee, please contact Mr. Kirkley in the counseling office with the name of the scholarship(s) that interest(s) you.  A scholarship committee will review the list of interested applicants and select students to serve as Dreher’s nominees.  Students who are nominated must complete scholarship applications as well as the application for admission at the respective universities.  Interested students must contact Mr. Kirkley to express interest in a specific scholarship no later than October 1 in order to be considered.
