Each year, millions of dollars are offered to graduating high school seniors in the form of National, State, and Area Scholarships. Selection criteria, application processes, and deadlines vary for each scholarship. There is scholarship money out there for everyone! We encourage our students to visit the websites listed below which provide scholarship lists and search engines to help you find scholarships that fit you.
Tips- Never give out private information (social security number, bank account number, etc) to scholarship providers. If a scholarship asks for this or money of some sort, it is most likely a scam. The point of scholarships is to give money to students, not vice versa!
Naviance - The MOHS Guidance Department will list any National, State, or Area Scholarships that we come across on Naviance. Sign in to your account. Select the "Colleges" tab in the top left corner. Select "Scholarship List." This list will be updated throughout the entire school year. Pay close attention to deadlines!
These scholarships are only offered to MOHS graduating seniors. A list of Local Scholarships will be made available in the spring under the guidance tab labeled as "Local Scholarships". See Mr. Kerrigan if you have any questions.
Mt. Olive High School is pleased to announce that we have again partnered with the Rochkind-Wagner Foundation! The Rochkind-Wagner Foundation funds achievement awards in Math and Science at several public high schools in Morris County.

Student who qualifies for three awards: $900
Student who qualifies for four awards: $1400
To participate in the program, students must supply a parental consent form (link here) authorizing the school to release the name and address of awardees and their school year (grade) level to the Rochkind Wagner Foundation so that the
Foundation may remain in touch with awardees to follow their progress and to encourage them in their chosen careers.
To earn awards, students must sit for College Board professionally proctored, pencil and paper AP Exams in 2023. These exams have already been scheduled by the College Board to take place May 1-5, and May 8-12, 2023.
