The Lena Galbraith Fund was created in 1965 to award $25.00 for students pursuing a career in teaching. One student was selected from each of the high schools. This was given to the student upon enrollment in Long Beach City College to cover the cost of books.
Now, LBCPTA has a $500 scholarship for High School students who meet the criteria listed on the application. The scholarship can be used at any College or Career School for tuition, books or other college fees. This scholarship is available to one qualified student from each LBUSD high schools with an active PTA/PTSA unit in good standing.
Application deadline is March 15, 2018. Submit completed applications to your school’s Career and College Center Counselor. The LBCPTA High School Scholarship Committee will select one winner from each high school.
- The scholarship is for applicants who will attend any College or Career School in the fall as a full-time student.
- The student’s cumulative GPA must be 2.0 or above.
- The student winner must be a current PTA/PTSA member at any LBUSD school.
