FAQs

How did the Hathaway Success Curriculum requirements change as a result of SF0043?
SF0043 provides more flexibility for students in meeting the success curriculum requirements for the Hathaway Scholarship Program. Specifically, students pursuing a Performance or Honors level scholarship may choose their elective pathway in the areas of Foreign Language, Career and Technical Education (CTE), or Fine and Performing Arts (FPA). Students must take a minimum of two sequenced years in any of these content areas. For students pursuing the Opportunity or Provisional Opportunity levels of the scholarship, the success curriculum requirements did not change.
Is Foreign Language still required for the Performance or Honors level of the Hathaway Scholarship?
No. Students can now choose to take four years of courses in either CTE, FPA, or foreign language.
Do the new elective courses need to be sequenced?
Two of the four required years must be sequenced in CTE, FPA, or Foreign Language. For example, Welding I/Welding II, Spanish I/Spanish II, and Art I/Art II would all meet the sequenced requirement. The other two year can be in CTE, FPA and FL.
When do the new Hathaway Success Curriculum requirements take effect?
For students graduating in 2019 and 2020 (this year’s juniors and seniors), students can qualify for a Hathaway Scholarship by meeting either the new requirements outlined in SF0043 or the current requirements. For students graduating in 2021 and beyond, the new requirements outlined in SF0043 will be in full effect.
