It's scholarship application time again


It’s that time of the year when local scholarship opportunities begin popping up, and application deadlines loom for high school seniors and college students. The Sun only has a couple on the list for this week’s paper, but more are sure to come in the following weeks and months, so keep an eye out:

The Central Coast Greenhouse Growers Association is taking applications for its 2014 scholarships. Horticulture majors who are graduating high school seniors or current college students who are children of the employee of an association nursery member are eligible to apply for the scholarships.

Horticulture majors must have a purposeful educational goal within the field of horticulture or in a related field. Other applicants need to showcase a purposeful educational goal in any field. Parents or guardians must be employed and in good standing at a growers association nursery member.

Applications must be submitted by midnight on March 31, with all the paperwork submitted together. For more information about the scholarships, visit, or contact the association at or (800) 961-8901.

American Veterans United, Inc. is offering two $500 scholarships to high school seniors in the Santa Maria Joint Union High School District and Orcutt Academy who are direct descendants of a United States military veteran. Students must plan to attend college in the 2014-2015 school year.
