The Natomas Schools Foundation is offering six $1,500 scholarships and four $1,000 scholarships this spring to deserving current high school seniors who attend the Natomas Unified School District and plan to further their education.

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

The entry deadline is Friday, April 8 by 6 p.m. Recipients will be notified before the end of the scheduled school year by the Natomas Schools Foundation, a nonprofit group committed to raising funds to benefit students attending schools within the Natomas Unified School District 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.
