Dear Parent of Incoming Freshman:

Due to the generous donation of Mr. Louis Gerstner, we have the opportunity to award two scholarships to deserving freshmen attending John Carroll High School in the fall of 2014. The amount of the annual award is $9,000. Applicants must have recommendations from their elementary school and must be in financial need. The Gerstner Scholarship Committee will also examine each applicantís high school application form, placement test scores, and elementary school transcripts. I am grateful to Mr. Gerstner for enabling us to offer such an incredible opportunity for two of our students, and I hope that your child will submit his/her necessary paperwork for consideration. The recipients will be chosen by the selection committee and must submit a 500 word essay on their community service and future plans. This essay should also indicate his/her worthiness for reception of the scholarship. These scholarships are renewable for four years as long as the recipients maintain at least a 3.0 grade point average, complete 25 hours of community service, and participate in extra-curricular programs. The deadline to submit the application is Thursday, March 20, 2014. Please refer to the Student Application form for all required documents. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call me at (772) 464-5200.
