The Evelyn Blose Holman Foundation seeks to assure that each Bay Shore student remains competitive for the college of his/her choice by accessing opportunities, while in high school, that contribute to his/her academic success.
While not all encompassing, such activities may include:
college coaching, summer programs at college campus, college visits and any other such activity that prepares students for college academic life.
Guidance counselors, teachers and administrators may suggest programs/activities or wish to invite college admission officers to Bay Shore for individual/group presentations that pertain to our goals.
Sample areas for discussion include dress for success, manners and influence, internet cautions, resume building, interviewing techniques and common application limitations.
A student may present an application and case for his/her need or project. Each case will be reviewed on an individual basis. Applications forms are available from the Foundation website and Guidance office.
Students may be referred to another funding source such as the Student Aid Committee for Scholarships or other Board of Education approved funding sites.
Students may receive partial funding.
