30+ years of providing scholarships and furthering education


Senior applicants must submit the application with transcript of grades, a list of activities, personal and work references, and an essay.

Applications are due in Mr. Nikont’s office by Thursday, April 18, 2024.

Student applicant interviews are scheduled for April 29 & May 1, 2024.

Our Board takes the time to interview each applicant individually to get a better sense of who you are and your circumstances. While you may find the idea of the interview a bit unnerving, we are all local folks from the community who want to see you succeed and participating in our interview will serve as a warm-up for all the other interviews you’ll have during your life.

Another scholarship program available only to Big Horn seniors is the Lion’s Club scholarship programs. Their program is run separately from ours.
