  • How to apply for the HJUHSD Local Scholarships:

    • Create a Going Merry account/profile by visiting www.goingmerry.com or click on the GM Logo above.

    • Create an account using your personal email address-not your school email address. And make the address appropriate

    • Identify 2 - 3 individuals who can write you a letter of recommendation.  Two letters are required from: A staff member, community member, employer/former employer, clergy, etc.  You need to request your letters of recommendation asap to be able to move on in the scholarship application process.  You can send requests for letters of recommendation with your Going Merry profile.  It's super easy! (Please allow up to 3 weeks to receive your letter). 

    • Complete any additional information needed. Include any additional pages, essays, art submissions, etc. as required for those scholarships that ask for them and upload them to your Going Merry account.  Links to required documents for scholarships asking for additional forms required are below.  Please upload these documents to your Going Merry profile in your "Documents" folder.  Label file with scholarship name.  

    • Fill out the "Transcript request form" in January, on the District website.  You should request one (1) sent to you via email.  That is the one that you will be uploading to Going Merry! If the scholarship that you are applying for requires an "Official Transcript in a sealed envelope", then you will also request those using the same form.  You will need to come to HHS to pick that up in the main office from the Registrar.  If a scholarship deadlines prior to January, and is requiring a current transcript, you will still need to request a new one in January. The January transcript will include grades from the first semester of your senior year.  Your fall transcript does not. 

    Items that you will need to create to apply for scholarships:

      • Student resume - Include all activities, clubs and organizations and athletic teams that you have been active in while in High School.  

      • Scholarship Essay/Personal Statement - NEW! All the HJUHSD Local Scholarships require that you write three short essays.

      • Letters of Recommendation - You should upload 2-3 letters of recommendation to be included in your application.  Letters of Rec can be from HHS Staff, your Elementary and Middle School Staff or other members of the community.  A good rule of thumb is to give your recommender a "Student Activities Record" (Available in student tools") or a Resume so that they have plenty of information to include in your letter. 

      • Transcript - A seventh semester transcript is required to be attached to all "Local Scholarship Program" applications.  For Special Applications, please follow the directions on the application.  Some apps require transcripts and some do not.  Also, be aware of the type of transcript they are requesting.  Official Transcripts - Require a signature and District stamp.  Sealed Transcripts require that your official transcript be put into a sealed envelope by the Registrar.  You can request your transcript from Mrs. Lourenco in the Main Office.  

      • Awards and Honors - Some scholarships require that you include certificates or citation letters for the awards and honors that you have been given.  Scan these items and save as a PDF to include them in your applications.

    • NOTE:  All "Required Document" areas must be filled with a document before you can "submit" an application. Once all required documents are attached to the application, the program will allow you to submit your application. Not all applications require the same attachments, so please be sure the required documents are attached.
