Local Scholarships

MHS Local Scholarships

Listed below are scholarships offered locally to Montezuma graduates. Most are exclusive to Montezuma graduates. Several of the scholarships listed have their own scholarship application. These are listed for you to download. The majority of the local scholarships use the General Montezuma Scholarship Application. This is listed as a download as well. Even though the general scholarship may be listed for several of the scholarships below, you only have to fill it out once; we will make copies in the office for the different scholarship committees.


All local scholarship applications need to be turned in by the April 1st deadline. 

All applications need to be typed or they will be discarded. Most have typable documents available. Send applications as an email attachment to [email protected]. If you choose not to send by email, you can hand deliver a copy to Ms. Taylor or Becky in the office.
