NCHE Scholarships Awarded

In December 2011, forty-eight homeschool seniors sent application packets to be considered for one of six scholarships that NCHE administers. Transcripts, SAT or ACT scores, two letters of recommendation and a personal essay were required from each student. A committee carefully examined each packet, ranking each one.
