Class of 2019 Merit Scholarships

Each year many Seniors are awarded merit scholarships at the institutions to which they apply. In most cases, their awards are not based on scholarship applications, but they are based solely on their applications for admission. In addition, some students apply for outside scholarships, often through local or national foundations, which, if they are awarded, can be applied to any institution they choose to attend. Below is a summary of the merit scholarships that have been reported by students and parents to the College Office by the Class of 2019. 

The awards listed here are only those that students will be using in the upcoming year. Many more merit scholarships were awarded to CA Seniors at institutions that they chose not to attend. Join us in our heartfelt congratulations to all of these Seniors for their recognized achievements!
