A student’s education doesn’t end once they walk across that high-school graduation stage. That’s why California State PTA has two scholarships to help high school seniors achieve their college dreams and life goals.

  • $750 Volunteer Service Scholarship – This scholarship recognizes graduating seniors for their volunteer service in schools and communities, and allows them to register for courses at accredited colleges, universities, trade or technical schools
  • $500 Dr. Ralph E. White Graduating Senior Scholarship – Honoring the volunteer and public-service legacy of Dr. Ralph E. White and his wife, Eleanor, this scholarship provides $500 each to two successful applicants of the Volunteer Service Scholarship who intend to pursue a career in a medical field.

Applications are due February 1. All scholarship applications require current membership at PTAs in good standing, so if you know a student who is not yet a PTA member but is interested in applying, be sure to contact your local PTA to join today or join online at www.capta.org/join!

Apply online at www.capta.org/scholarships/graduating-high-school-seniors.

SACRAMENTO – California State PTA President Dianna MacDonald issued the following statement regarding the recent tragedies in California:

“From senseless acts of violence to raging wildfires, California families once again have suffered the unthinkable.

“There aren’t words to describe the deep impact and devastation these tragedies have caused in our state – to our families, our friends, our neighbors and our communities.

“PTA has long stood beside those in need and those without a voice, and today is no different. We encourage you to do what you can to support all children and families in California. Visit the American Red CrossSalvation Army or California Community Foundation’s Wildfire Relief Fund for more information on where to send your financial gift, or to find a local blood drive to help victims.”
