Local Scholarship Common Application 

Many residents of Vacaville, local merchants, business service groups, clubs, and professional organizations have offered to assist Vacaville High School seniors in pursuing further education at colleges, universities, and specialized schools. We are grateful for their contributions and encouragement. 

There are two categories for Local Scholarships

1. Local Scholarship Common Application - one application for multiple different scholarships all due: TBD, March 2024 by 4pm. LATE APPLICATIONS WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED.

2. Individual Scholarships- each with unique application requirements and deadlines (See Non Local Scholarship Brochure to the right and VHS Bulletin Below).

Questions? Please see Ms. Becki Fulton in the VHS Counseling Office (707) 453-6011 ext. 1011


Please check the descriptions of the scholarships in the Common Scholarship Brochure before applying to make sure you are eligible.  Hard copies of the applications and brochures are available in the counseling office or can be found below. The application can be downloaded (or in google select 'save a copy'), typed, saved, printed and then dropped off to VHS.

Please make sure you read the descriptions in the brochure and complete any special items that are required by the Donor.  To make things easier for you please complete one application completely and leave the scholarship title at the top blank.  Then make copies of the completed application and then fill in the title for each scholarship you are applying for. Students must also turn in one MASTER Copy along with the individual copies. All packets must be turned in to the counseling office. Electronic copies will not be accepted. 

Scholarship Bulletin and Applications for the 2023-24 school year are expected to open February 2024. To reference last years brochure and application, please see below.
