The SVEF Scholarship is awarded to high school students from Royal High, Santa Susana High, Simi Valley High, Apollo High, Monte Vista and Moorpark College.  Requirements for this scholarship include:

  • Must be planning to graduate this year.
  • Must be planning to attend an accredited trade school with certification within SVUSD, two-year college, or four-year college.

The SVEF Endowment Program Scholarship offers awards to students who cannot afford to fund their own education and show a strong desire to succeed by educating themselves. The intent is that these scholarships will offer an opportunity or turning point in a young person’s life that inspires them to go on to be an asset to our community.  The recipients should be students who have tremendous potential but may not have outstanding grades. The committee will be looking for individuals who have shown significant improvement during his/her high school career.  The Endowment Program provides a two-year scholarship in the sum of $1,000 for the first year and after verification of the successful completion of classes, the student can apply for the second-year allotment.  Requirements for this scholarship include:

  • Available to present Simi Valley public high school graduates.
  • Must be planning to attend an accredited trade school with certification within SVUSD, two-year college, or four-year college on a full-time basis (minimum of 12 semester units) or participate in a Certificate Program at the Simi Institute for Careers and Education.

Scholarship applications are available in the Spring.

Please check with your school counselor for more details.
