2017 – 2018  Allen High School Choir Booster Scholarship Process  

Information and Instructions

The AHS Choir Booster Club invites all Senior choir students who are college bound to apply for a scholarship from the AHS Choir Booster Club.   

 

Number and Value of Scholarships 

The number of scholarships and the final value of the scholarships are to be determined by the executive board of the Allen High School Choir Booster Club. 

 Judging 

All scholarships will be judged with the candidate’s name removed and a candidate number assigned. We have enlisted judges from Allen, Texas who have diverse/music backgrounds, and who will judge independently of one another.  

 The judges will be given explicit instructions for ranking the candidates in order, following the review of the student’s application and essay, from first to last, corresponding with the total number of applications/essays submitted.    

 The results of the judges’ rankings will be tabulated by a non-senior parent and presented to the choir directors. 

 Following the determination of the number of scholarships, the scholarships will be awarded as judged. 

 Announcement of Scholarship Recipients 

Scholarship recipients will be announced at the Choir Banquet.  Awards will be distributed to the college listed on the application.  Actual awards are made in June (or before).
