  1.  Scholarship recipients must claim their scholarship within two years of the Awards Ceremony they received the scholarship.  It is recommended that recipients send their first semester college transcripts to the high school office.  Scholarship funds will then be sent to the college/university.
  2. Thank You Letter – Kent City HS strongly recommends writing a Thank You note to the scholarship sponsor.  All scholarship recipients were given a list of sponsor addresses at the ceremony.  Contact the high school office if you need additional copies.
