Scholarship Pitfalls

FAILURE TO CHECK FOR SCHOLARSHIPS:  Remember to check the Guidance Office or the webpage http://www.torrington.org/page.cfm?p=283 for scholarships that become available. Scholarships are added on a frequent basis so please be sure to check it at least once a week!

FAILURE TO FOLLOW DIRECTIONS: Many submitted applications are disqualified because all requested and necessary documentation have not been submitted with the application.   READ THE DIRECTIONS CAREFULLY!

BEWARE OF DEADLINES: Failure to adhere to stated deadlines can cause you to lose out on scholarship opportunities. Plan of action – Complete and submit your applications well before the deadline.

ENVELOPE & STAMP(S): When an original transcript is required to be sent with an application, please remember to provide a stamped envelope addressed to the scholarship organization together with a signed Transcript Release form (make sure proper postage is on envelope)! Again….. be aware of deadlines! Transcript releases, SAT/ACT scores, teacher recommendations, etc., may take time to assemble so please submit applications ahead of deadline date!

FAILURE TO SUBMIT SCHOLARSHIP APPLICATIONS: Many students will request local scholarship application forms they are eligible for but DO NOT return or submit the completed applications. You won’t be considered for a scholarship if an application is not submitted.   (Ex: Only 28% of Dick’s Restaurant Scholarship applications were returned the day prior to the deadline and only 33% of the THS Scholarship packets were returned by the due date)

Shaw-Worth Memorial Scholarship

Application Deadline:  March 25, 2016

Applications are now being accepted for the 2016 Shaw-Worth Memorial Scholarship. Since 1965, the award has been assisting students who, in the course of working in the service of animals, demonstrate a deep respect for animals and people. 


Administered by The HSUS, the award provides up to $3,500, which may be divided among multiple recipients. Each award is given as payment to the college, university, or specialized training academy at which the recipient will be matriculating in 2016. Students from New England public, private, parochial and vocational schools are eligible.

High scholastic standing is not a requisite for this scholarship; please do not include academic transcripts in the application. Financial need is also not a consideration.

Applications may be submitted by any Class of 2016 high school senior in New England and must be postmarked by March 25, 2016. There is no standardized application form to complete. Applications should be written in letter form and include:

  •    student name and school
