SCHOLARSHIP APPLICATION

The first two $200 scholarships were awarded to two students in 1982. As of June 2020, the Association has awarded 360 scholarships totaling $664,546.00.

One of the main purposes of your South Pasadena High School Alumni Association is to award scholarships to South Pasadena High School graduating seniors who will continue their education beyond high school. Over 95% of South Pasadena graduates continue on to college.

Applicants must be planning to attend a community college, four-year college or university, nursing, trade, or vocational school to pursue training in a trade or a Bachelor’s Degree. 

Your alumni association Scholarship Committee evaluates the applicants based upon financial need, scholastic record, school and extracurricular activities, community service, and work experience. The evaluation concludes with a personal interview by members of the Alumni Association Scholarship Committee.  The selection is made by the Committee and awards are announced at the Awards Presentation Ceremony held in early June of each year.  Funding for scholarships is made upon evidence of enrollment by the student in the selected educational institution.

Scholarships are presented at the awards night held in early June each year.  Each winner also receives a one-year membership in the Alumni Association.

Thank you to all who have contributed to this very worthwhile activity.  For those of you who have not, why not make this the year you send in your donation for a deserving SPHS graduate.
