Apply Now for Local Scholarships Provided by The Elk Grove Regional Scholarship Foundation

EGRSF will award over $200,000 to Elk Grove area 2018 graduating seniors. The application for over 70 scholarships available to Sheldon seniors will be available December 1st online at 

Scholarships are available for students planning to attend a technical school, community college, or four-year public or private university.  Each scholarship has different criteria. Many of the foundation scholarships are based on a student's experience and career choice and not on a high grade point average. 

All students who plan to pursue additional education after high school are encouraged to apply for these scholarships.  A separate application must be submitted for each scholarship you are applying for. Students can only be awarded one scholarship, and if selected for more than one will receive the award that provides them with the most money.  
All applications must be completed and submitted online.  A copy of the submitted applications must also be printed and turned in to Ms. McCabe in the Career Center by the January 19, 2018 deadline with required documents (transcript, letter of recommendation, etc.)  Questions?  See your counselor or Ms. McCabe.
