College Scholarship for High School Seniors
The Sunnyhills Neighborhood Association (SNA) recognizes the importance of higher education to the residents of our community, and the burden of it’s expense, especially for those in financial need. The SNA Scholarship is available to members of the senior class of Milpitas High School (MHS) and Calaveras Hills High School (CHHS) who will attend college following graduation and are from the Sunnyhills area (from the Milpitas/Fremont border to Jacklin Blvd, between Milpitas Blvd. and I-680). Priority will be given to those who can establish financial need and those who have volunteered or performed community service for SNA. The scholarship shall be presented at the Milpitas High School Senior Awards ceremony or the Calaveras Hills High School Awards Night.
