Turk Scholarship Opportunity

Ahead of the Thanksgiving holiday break, I wanted to send a reminder about the launch of the 3rd annual Abraham and Lillian Turk Scholarship program! Your students will have plenty of time during their break from school to get a head start on filling out their application.

The program was created in memory of Abraham and Lillian Turk who believed that every person, regardless of his or her financial means, was entitled to an equal opportunity for a post high school education. The program provides up to 20 scholarships each year, of up to $10,000 each, to San Diego graduating high school seniors and those who have graduated within the last five years and have not yet attended a post high school institution, to attend a two-year or four-year college or a technical or vocational school, who meet the program requirements.

Over the last two years, a total of 37 scholarships have been awarded, representing 29 San Diego County high schools. Below, please find the scholarship announcement. Note all applications must be submitted no later than March 1, 2017.
