Viking Scholar Timeline
The Viking Scholar Award process is usually accomplished in three separate components.
The application for the 2017-2018 Viking Scholar will now be submitted online, beginning January 2, 2018. It is designed to mirror the actual Sterling Scholar application and process. The questions will be similar to those asked in the Sterling Scholar application. The online application is located below this introduction. But can also be accessed by clicking here. Questions on the application will include:
The portfolio requirements all vary depending on the Viking Scholar category chosen. Only those students who make it past the application screening process will be invited to do the portfolio. A list of categories and portfolio requirements are included below. (Click on the name of the category below to see the portfolio requirements.)
The interview is related to the Viking Scholar category content. A panel of teachers and community representatives will be there to ask questions to the students. This process can be quite intimidating, but is a great opportunity to practice interviewing skills and justifying one's goals for the future.
The interview process will take place in March. The date of the interview will depend on the category you are applying for.
For Dance applicants, the interview date is March 23.
For Instrumental and Vocal Music applicants, the interview date is March 28 and 29.
For all other applicants, the interviews will be on March 30.
A detailed list of times will be delivered to each applicant that advances to the interview process.
Viking Scholar Banquet will be held at 6:00 PM on May 1st.
