MHS extends deadline for scholarship applications

MENDOTA - Mendota High School guidance counselor Rachel Tarr has announced that the scholarship application deadline is being extended to Wednesday, April 1 at 4 p.m. The new deadline will not be extended any further, so students are advised to prepare accordingly.

The following link will provide a PDF copy of the cover sheet that must be included with the submission. Go to Only one cover sheet per student needs to be submitted (not one for each application).

There are several options for submission which include:

  1. Mail completed applications to: Rachel Tarr, Mendota Township High School, 2300 West Main, Mendota, IL 61432. Your mailing must be postmarked on or before April 1. Applications postmarked after April 1 will not be accepted.
  2. Submit your application to Mrs. Tarr in person when school reopens, March 31 and April 1.
  3. Those able to scan documents from home may e-mail completed applications in PDF form. If choosing this method, please scan/e-mail each application as a separate document. For example, if the scholarship requires a 1-page essay and a transcript, scan the two pages together to create one PDF document. Rename the document to include the title of the scholarship. Please do not send a 50-page document that contains multiple scholarship submissions - it will not be accepted.
  4. Bring completed applications to the high school, which is currently scheduled to be open Monday-Friday from 8 a.m.-3 p.m. (least preferred method). Things are changing rapidly, however, so please call ahead (815) 539-7446 to make sure someone will be able to accept the applications.

During the school closure, Mrs. Tarr can be reached by e-mail at [email protected] to answer questions or for assistance.
