This Scholarship is more than GPAs and honors received in school. It is intended for gifted students who are entering a college or university and have a passion beyond the academics; an intellectual or artistic passion that drives them to succeed beyond the classroom. It is meant to fuel the intellectual and artistic passion within each student without regard to the financial status of their parents. Winners receive $1,000 to put towards attending a post-secondary institution full-time. To be eligible, students must be in 11th or 12th grade and be taking courses at an accredited California university.
