Local Scholarship Donor Application

HMBHS Local Scholarship Program

The Half Moon Bay High School Local scholarship program began in the 1970s and has been an important way for our community to demonstrate support for our graduating seniors. Each year over fifty individuals and groups in the community contribute to this program. In 2011 over one hundred and fifty scholarships were awarded to one hundred and sixteen graduating seniors, which totaled over $120,000.00 in scholarship donations.
