Grant opportunities for Torrey Pines High School senior scholars

The Torrey Pines High School Dollars for Scholars (DFS) chapter celebrates the 25th anniversary of providing college grants to TPHS senior students. DFS is a nationally affiliated organization which awards scholarship monies to graduating high school students. The funds are donated by local community organizations and individuals for general, memorial, or donor specific scholarships. Last year, the TPHS DFS chapter awarded $45,500 to students recognized for academic, extra-curricular, community service, and personal endeavor achievements. Beginning Feb. 3, 2012, applications for DFS scholarships can be downloaded from the TPHS homepage at All completed applications are due by Friday, March 2, 2012. Any TPHS senior with a 2.5 GPA or greater that is planning to attend a two- or four-year college or trade school may apply. All applicants must include the following information: teacher recommendations (two each), brief essay (pertaining to essay prompt), and extracurricular activity details. Applicants remain anonymous prior to the group interview of finalists in April. Scholarship recipients are notified in early May, and honored at the DFS official Awards Ceremony on May 23, 2012.

Dollars For Scholars is a non-profit organization and maintains a year-round focus on raising funds from local businesses, foundations, government agencies, service groups, and individuals. All proceeds from the TPHS Student Directory are used for student scholarships. The Torrey Pines High School DFS chapter depends on community involvement, and encourages interested donors to contact, or call Betsy Mackey at (858) 793-6203.
