The Natomas Schools Foundation is offering $6,000 in scholarships this spring to deserving current or former local residents who attend or attended high school in the Natomas Unified School District and plan to further their education.

Three $1,000 scholarships will be awarded specifically to current high school seniors, while  college students can compete for six additional scholarships of $500 apiece. 

Applicants must have a cumulative grade point average of 2.5 or higher and, during the past two years, have served 50 hours or more in formal employment or volunteer service, which can include school clubs. A short essay is required about lessons learned from that service. 

Entry deadline is April 13. Winners will be announced in May by the Natomas Schools Foundation, a nonprofit group committed to raising funds to benefit students and schools within NUSD boundaries.

 Scholarship funds can be used toward expenses at a two-year college, four-year college or trade school. More information and an application form are posted below.

Applications are available here.
