The Foundation recognizes the difficulty that today's students face in finding financial assistance while entering the career paths of their choice. We are proud to help deserving students of the Woodland Hills School District achieve their full potential. To-date, over 65 scholarships totaling $100,000 have been awarded for post-secondary education including technical, vocational, and baccalaureate degrees. Thank you to all of our Scholarship Donors, who make these scholarships possible each year.

Fund a Scholarship

Helping students at Woodland Hills achieve their dreams is easier than you might think! Our staff is here to get the help you need to quickly set up a Scholarship Fund. Our committee works tirelessly to be sure information is distributed to guidance counselors and potential applicants; applications are processed promptly and contain complete information; checks are written and gifts acknowledged promptly when the fund receives donations.

Specifically, we will work with you to:

  • Establish the amount/set a budget

  • Determine if the scholarship will be awarded yearly or if it will be a one-time scholarship

  • Establish eligibility requirements

Meet Our 2020 Scholarship Award Recipients:

Apply for a Scholarship

Students in their Senior Year of High School at Woodland Hills School District are invited to apply.  There are currently ten scholarships available.  Each scholarship has a different award amount, guidelines and criteria.

Students should carefully read through each of the scholarship guidelines to determine which scholarship suits them best.  Additionally, students are permitted to apply for multiple scholarships.

Students wishing to apply for a scholarship should visit our new Student Portal

Scholarship applications ARE NOW OPEN!

Review committees select recipients based on information submitted by the applicant (but names are blacked out). Some scholarship funds have specific eligibility requirements established by the donor, such as enrollment at a particular college or specializing in a particular field of study. Committees make their selections and the recipient is notified prior to the annual Woodland Hills School District Awards Banquet.
