SES seniors may now apply for a total of eight scholarships.

The deadline is Friday, May 1.


  • SES Foundation: Five - $1,000 scholarships for SES seniors
  • Flint Hills Discovery: Two - $2,500 scholarships for SES seniors
  • Fairview Ridges: One -$1,500 scholarship for SES seniors



Each applicant will be evaluated on: academics, activities, community service, and leadership. 

To be eligible for the Flint Hills scholarship, applicants must have a minimum GPA of 3.6 and have plans to pursue a career in a math or science related field.  Applicants should also have experience in leadership and entrepreneurialism.

Steps to apply:

  1. One application may  be used for all scholarships.
  2. Clearly indicate your: name, address, phone number, e-mail, parent contact, and college you plan on attending in the fall of 2020.
  3. Please list your: school activities, non-school activities, work, and volunteer experiences during high school.
  4. Please write an essay of one to two pages in length about your future academic and career goals and how a scholarship will help you attain them.
  5. You will need to submit the names of two individuals who fill out a form to recommend you for the scholarship. If your recommenders are SES or District 196 staff you do not need to give any contact information – just their names and position in the district. If it is not a District 196 staff person, then you will need to provide phone number and e-mail. Do not ask your recommenders to write a letter. Mr. Nelson will contact them and they will fill out a standard form.
  6. To be eligible for the Flint Hills Discovery Scholarship financial need must be considered (the other scholarships don’t require this). You must provide the front page of your FAFSA/Student Aid Report which indicates the Expected Family Contribution (EFC). A copy of an online estimate is also acceptable.


How to submit:  

Once you’ve completed the “steps to apply” please e-mail completed documents to Mr. Nelson or mail them to Mr. Nelson at SES.
