Canyon Crest Academy Dollars for Scholars applications open; Donors sought to make a difference


Applications are now online at for Canyon Crest Academy seniors to apply for the 2013 Dollars for Scholars scholarships. Scholarship recipients, selected based upon school and community involvement, scholastic achievement, and personal commitment, receive awards beginning at $500 that they apply to higher education tuition and fees.

“Last year, scholarships totaling $28,000 were awarded to 47 outstanding CCA seniors,” said Beth Broussalian, CCA Dollars for Scholars president. “This year, we are currently at 55 percent of our goal to award a total of $30,000 in scholarships. While some scholarship funds are raised through sales of CCA student directories and graduation leis, we rely for the majority of scholarship funding on the generous donations of CCA families, alumni, and friends of the Carmel Valley and San Diego community.”

Individuals and businesses may make a tax-deductible single donation of any amount or establish a corporate scholarship of $500 or more. They may designate a scholarship for a major in a particular discipline, or to remember a loved one or friend. CCA Dollars for Scholars welcomes matching donations from employees’ businesses. Donations made to CCA Dollars for Scholars, a program of Scholarship America, a 501.c.3 corporation, are tax deductible to the extent allowed by law and are awarded to CCA students who plan to attend a two- or four-year university or college, vocational or technical school.
