Every year, La Cañada Council PTA and First District PTA award scholarships to graduating seniors who demonstrate a commitment to community service and engagement, leadership and personal responsibility.

First District Commemorative Scholarship

The First District PTA Commemorative Scholarship Fund was established to commemorate First District PTA volunteers who were long-time, dedicated child advocates and whose tireless efforts contributed greatly to the benefit of students, parents and schools within the geographic area of First District PTA.

Commemorative scholarships are awarded to acknowledge graduating high school students who have achievements, service and involvement in the following areas:







First District PTA encourages applications reflective of students who have: a minimum GPA of 2.0; worked diligently and to the best of their academic abilities; displayed good citizenship in a positive manner; been involved in school and community activities: and held an after school, part-time or summer job, and/or managed extra home responsibilities.

Applications for this scholarship award will be forwarded to a La Cañada Council PTA scholarship selection committee, where one finalist will be chosen and submitted to the First District PTA selection committee for consideration. An additional La Cañada Council PTA scholarship may be awarded to a second applicant from this pool.
