Scholarship Application

Impacting the lives of Mather High School students.

Established in 2000 by the Class of 1965 as a gateway to the new millennium, this scholarship has already had an impact on the lives of many Mather High School students. The Mather High School Alumni Fund annually offers one $8,000 scholarship payable in $2,000 increments over four years. In addition, we grant $500 special awards when funds are available. A scholarship that provides financial backing beyond the first year gives the students’ confidence that they have the support to sustain themselves through their final years of college. In addition, these recipients enjoy the continued support and mentoring of alumni.

Donations from the alumni have already made it possible to award $283,000.00 in scholarships since the start of this program.  You can support this important program by making a donation on-line.

 

 

All scholarship funds are paid directly to the college chosen by the individual student. Students interested in applying for the Mather High School Alumni scholarship must be a graduating member of the Mather High School Class of the current graduation year who is planning to attend a four-year college or university. Members of the Alumni Scholarship Evaluation Committee will determine recipients based upon the students' overall academic record and the merits of the student's written essay.

The due date for all applications and essays is January 31, 2019. To receive an application, the student can either  download it or obtain a hard copy from Sara Wong, Counselor. Interested students should send their completed application to:
