The purpose of the San Diego County Salute to Education scholarship program is to encourage students to seek a higher education at a vocational/technical school, junior college, college or university after graduating from high school. The program aims at recruiting students who deserve recognition for their personal accomplishments and contributions to their schools and communities. Academic achievement is considered, but is not the determining factor in receiving a Salute to Education scholarship.
Eligible applicants must: be residents of San Diego County; be a senior high school student attending an accredited public or private school in San Diego County; and be scheduled to graduate in the spring semester and have a desire to continue his or her education at a vocational/technical school, junior college, college or university. All high school seniors may apply regardless of their grade point average. Students who receive a full four year scholarship are not eligible to apply or receive a San Diego County Salute to Education scholarship.
