Oxford Hills Scholarship Foundation

Over $800,000 in scholarship funds were awarded to students in the spring of 2018!  Two-thirds of these awards were funded by the Oxford Hills Scholarship Foundation.  The OHSF is the largest scholarship foundation associated with a single public high school in New England! 
The Oxford Hills Scholarship Foundation was established in 1998 and has benefited from two donations of $1,000,000 each from Robert and Sandra Bahre.  The Foundation has awarded over $2,000,000 in scholarships since 1999.  Last year, the Foundation awarded over $580,000 to the class of 2018 and students already enrolled in college.  The Oxford Hills Scholarship Foundation provides scholarship in varying amounts to graduating seniors and previous OHCHS graduates annually.  Scholarships are awarded to students enrolled in Associate or Undergraduate programs.  
The Scholarship Foundation also oversees the investment funds for several other scholarships supporting OHCHS graduates.

The Oxford Hills Scholarship Foundation uses a common application.  Students need only complete one application to be considered for the above scholarship.  
Eligibility requirements vary for some scholarships so the entire application must be completed to benefit from all sources of funding.  Students must certify that they are not a drug or alcohol abuser and have no criminal convictions.  Application must be received by the receptionist at the district's Central Office on or before the application due date.  The Foundation does not accept or review any application that arrives after the designated due date.  The next round of applications are due on or before April 26, 2019
