Our local scholarship program is seeking sponsors. Individuals, families, groups, neighborhoods, business, clubs, organizations, etc. are invited to sponsor a scholarship. This is a great way to honor a loved one, promote a field of study or promote your type of business. Scholarships can be offered to honor specific achievements. They can be offered to recognize a student’s individual talent, skill or ability. Scholarship amounts range from $100 to $5000 and sponsors can be as involved in the selection process of the recipient as they choose to be. 100% of all donations to the Assist-A-Grad Scholarship program go directly to students. We follow a share-the-wealth philosophy to allow more students to be recognized and honored for their achievements at Whitney High School.
