Resources

Resources from New Hampshire Scholars include vital program information, handouts, and communication tools. We have also compiled a short list of online state and federal resources. These sites offer information on completing school, accessing financial aid, and getting a great college education in New Hampshire.

NH Scholars Program Resources

 

Our program resources are designed to help participants get the most from the New Hampshire Scholars initiative. The documents here will help students and educators plan, complete, and benefit from NH Scholars requirements.

Four-Year Course Planner

Our 4-Year Course Planner goes out to students in grade 8 to help them plan their high school path. The planner summarizes the Core Course of Study and gives examples of courses in each subject area. It also outlines requirements for the additional Academic and Career Pathways.

An important piece of the planner is the New Hampshire Scholars pledge. Students and parents sign the pledge to signal a commitment to participating in the program. A formal commitment reinforces the message that taking rigorous courses helps prepare students for the future.

Scholarships for Scholars

We partner with 20+ colleges and universities to offer New Hampshire Scholars incentives for applying to college in state. Scholars can apply to these institutions for free through application fee waivers. They may also qualify for special merit scholarships.

The Scholarships for Scholars document describes the fee waivers and scholarships offered by our college and university partners. We encourage students to take advantage of these great opportunities.

NH Scholars Pathways

The colorful handout summarizes requirements for the Core Course of Study and the STEM, Arts, and Careers Pathways. This one-page document serves as a quick reference tool to complement the more detailed 4-year planner.

Resources for School Coordinators

Resources are available to help NH Scholars school coordinators organize meetings and inform others involved in the program. Resources for school coordinators include:

  • Sample PowerPoint presentations with information for students.
  • A summary of key elements of the NH Scholars program and how students can benefit from participating.
  • An end-of-year report template to make reporting on graduating New Hampshire Scholars simple.
