Special Education Foundation
The John Cary Scholarships will be given to graduating students who have received services from the Special School District of St. Louis County — special education and/or technical education – and who are planning to attend a four-year college or university. The selected students will reflect the characteristics most admired by John Cary — resiliency, courage and determination.The scholarship committee looks for evidence of future success by considering academics, leadership and community volunteer activities, and success in athletics and/or the arts. Well-rounded individuals, particularly those with exceptional achievement in a particular area, are likely to be successful applicants. Overcoming obstacles weighs heavily in the screening process. Financial need and teacher recommendations are also considered. The funds may be used for tuition only.
