The Spirit of American Youth Scholarship
The Caruso Affiliated Spirit of American Youth Scholarship will be awarded to two graduating high school seniors who attend a public or private school in the San Fernando and San Gabriel Valleys. Qualifying students will exhibit academic potential, provide examples of how they’ve contributed to the betterment of their communities, and complete an essay based on how they would invest in their communities to create a brighter future for the next generation. The value of each scholarship is $10,000.
The awarded scholarship funds are to be used solely towards cost of tuition at an accredited college or university, and not be applied to books, room and board, etc. The scholarship will be awarded in its totality directly to the school that the scholar has chosen to attend.
