Procedure to follow:

   1. Read the criteria for the scholarships listed below and determine those for which
      you feel qualified. On the “Local Scholarship Cover Sheet” list these five
      scholarship organizations to which you would like your application sent for

   2. Complete five copies of the Torrance Unified School District Scholarship
      Application Form. Be sure to attach (use clear tape) a wallet-size photo to each
      copy of the application. You may fill out the application by hand using black ink
      pen or you may download the application and complete it on your computer,
      which really is the very best method.

   3. Obtain three letters of recommendation: one from a high school teacher and one
      from a community member (i.e. religious leader, coach, employer, club sponsor,
      scout leader). The third letter may be from another high school teacher or
      community member. No letter may be from a family member or relative. These
      letters should be addressed “To Whom It May Concern”. You need to attach the
      three letters to the back of each of your scholarship applications. You are
      responsible for getting your letter writers to complete their letters for you before
      your completion deadline of December 4, 2009.

   4. The following materials must be returned to Miss Shwarts in person to the
      Counseling Office no later than Friday, December 4th by 3:15 p.m.:

          1. One (1) Local Scholarship Cover Sheet listing the 5 scholarship
             organizations to which you want your application sent for consideration.
          2. Five (5) completed copies of the TUSD application (with photo attached and
             letters of recommendation attached).
          3. You do not need to obtain copies of your transcript; I will complete that task
             for you.
          4. Continue to read/listen to the South High Daily Bulletin for on-going
             scholarship opportunities.
