Scholarship Applications

There are many ways for Butler Senior High School Students to search for assistance in paying for further education.   First, check out the links provided below to reputable scholarship search engine websites that will offer students opportunities for hundreds of scholarships nationwide.  Next, you will find multiple organizations from the area that provide us information to pass along to our students each year.  Links to those opportunities appear below as well.  We will update this information as it becomes available to us throughout the year.  Finally, our Senior Recognition Night takes place in late May.  Over $300,000 are awarded to our seniors that evening from local families and organizations.  Applications will be made available to all seniors in February.
