  5. For confidentiality, if desired, financial information pages may be placed in a sealed envelope, and placed into a larger unopened envelope for scholarship eligibility requirements and then given to the Career Center with any additional materials needed to be mailed.
  6. Recommendation letters should always be returned to the student in order to be mailed with the scholarships’ requirements. Letters can be placed in a sealed envelope with a signature across the seal for security.
  7. Allow 1-2 weeks for any official/Dean signatures or sections to be completed, obtaining transcripts, and mailing by the Career Center before the scholarship due date. Each scholarship will be reviewed before mailing for accuracy requirements and the return address will be from LNHS.
