High School Scholarship Award


Each year the Caddo District PTA awards scholarships to three or more graduating High School Seniors.  $600 is set aside for each scholarship offered.  Each Scholarship is a one time award only.


All scholarship award checks are made payable to the student and to the Louisiana University or College where the student is enrolled for the upcoming Fall semester.  If for any reason, the student is unable to enroll for the Fall semester at a Louisiana College or University, the scholarship shall be returned to the Caddo District PTA.


The bulk of the Scholarship Funds come from Member Contributions & Donations.  To make a donation to the Scholarship Fund, please click on the links below:
