Maybe the best things in life are free, but for college or high school, money is an almost certain necessity. With the cost of post-secondary education at an all time high, there is a growing uncertainty about how today's high school student will pay for post high school training.Since 1971, Central Montco Technical High School has addressed the challenge of financing a college education. During that time, CMTHS has allocated in excess of $750,000 in financial aid to its graduating seniors. Through this competitive and privately funded scholarship program, CMTHS seniors have been able to attend a wide variety of post-secondary schools. Preparation for this scholarship commences with the first day at Central Montco Technical High School and culminates with the formal application for a scholarship, made in January of the senior year. Criteria for Scholarships: The Scholarship Committee considers the following information when evaluating applications: • Overall grade point average. • CMTHS grade point average. • CMTHS instructor recommendation. • Extracurricular activities. • Financial needs. • Good attendance. • Other relevant information.
