Scholarships & Most Improved Awards for our Youth

Scholarships & Awards for our Youth

Our club provides scholarships  to graduating seniors from each of our High Schools: South Tahoe High School, George Whittell High School and Mt. Tallac High School. A committee evaluates the applications.  Criteria for the evaluation includes: financial need; academics; community service; employment; extra curricular activities; letters of recommendation; and the effort the student has made in life to be the person they have become as evidenced by the essay they submit.
