Scholarship Eligibility and Application Process
Graduating seniors of the Patterson Joint Unified School District (PJUSD) who are eligible are notified by their counselors. If seniors have questions about their eligibility, they should contact their school counselor.
Seniors must graduate with a cumulative GPA of not less than 2.5 to be considered for a scholarship. The amount of the scholarships will be determined within the following categories: 3.0 GPA or better, 2.75 to 2.99 GPA and 2.5 to 2.74 GPA.
You must attend a post-secondary school within two years of your graduating year, and be registered for a full time schedule of classes at an accredited institution. Full Time is defined as 12 units or more for this Scholarship.
The awarding of the scholarships and the amount awarded is the sole responsibility of the PRIDE Awards Committee. The amount of the awards will depend on the money available and the number of applicants. The amount of the PRIDE scholarships will be from $250 to $2000. The PRIDE Board reserves the right to adjust these amounts. These are one-time scholarships and are not guaranteed to all eligible applicants.
The applications are given to our P.R.I.D.E. Scholarship Screening committee, which consists of six to eight members. This committee is made up of P.R.I.D.E. board members and teachers from the school district. The committee will review the applications on an anonymous basis. For this reason, use only your Student ID number where indicated. Do not use any identifying names other than on the student information form.
If you are selected to receive a scholarship, you will be notified as soon as possible after the end of April. Scholarships will be awarded at the PRIDE Awards Ceremony in the spring. The date will be posted on the Patterson High Website. You must attend, or notify us ahead of time if someone will be there to accept your award.
