​Scholarship Guidelines:

To be considered eligible for a HCPTSA scholarship, the student applicant must be living within the Highline School District, currently enrolled in a Highline School District High School and graduating in June 2020. The high school does not have to have a PTA for a student to apply. Scholarships shall be available for use at any accredited college, university or vocational institute. Scholarship funds vary from $250 up to $1000 and are awarded at the discretion of the HCPTSA scholarship committee. 

Scholarship winners are selected for their hard-driving multi-faceted dedication to their school, their school work, extra-curricular activities including employment and community, have demonstrated a service mind-set and have financial need. Past winners have had volunteer service that includes starting after-school tutorial programs, volunteering as interpreters, organizing blood drives, leading graffiti removal campaigns, volunteering at food banks and rest homes, coaching younger athletes, serving as student representative on a district bond initiative, leadership in student government, while working part time and maintaining impressive GPAs. We were proud to offer scholarships to help these deserving students achieve their dreams, some of whom had difficult journeys in their life to reach graduation.
