Graduating High School girls of Napa Valley Unified Schools and the Court Community School, can now apply for The Future is You! Scholarship, sponsored by Soroptimist International of Napa.  Deadline for The Future is You! Scholarship is March 8, 2019.  This is the second year of the scholarship and it has been expanded to six, one-thousand dollar, scholarships for 2019 from two awarded last year.

The goal of this scholarship is to offer $1000 to a graduating senior girl in each of Napa Valley Unified School District schools, and one candidate from Napa County Court and Community Schools. All graduating girls are eligible for this scholarship, but particular consideration will be given to; young women who are first-generation college goers in their families, who have persisted in the face of obstacles, and who intend to enter career paths that will enable them to give back to their communities.
