PTSA Scholarships

There are two scholarship programs run by the Amador Valley High School PTSA awarded to seniors graduating from Amador Valley High School.

  • The Merit Scholarship is intended to recognize well-rounded students who intend to continue their education at a four-year college, community college, or vocational school.

  • The Community Service Scholarship is intended to recognize students who plan to continue their education at a four-year college, community college, or vocational school, who have had significant experience and given support in community service.

To be eligible for the AVHS PTSA scholarships, you must have been a member of the PTSA during BOTH your Junior and Senior years.

To verify that you were a PTSA member during your JUNIOR year (2020-2021) and SENIOR year (2021-2022), check this file: 2020-2022 Membership Lists. If you believe you were a member last year, but your name does not appear in the file for the 2020-2021 school year,, please email the Scholarship Committee and we will try to verify your membership some other way.
