Seniors - You can get a Cal Grant Application from the Local Scholarship Application in the College and Career Center or you can print it out from the attachment below. With a Cal Grant you may get up to $9,223 a year to pay for college expenses at any qualifying California college, university, or career or technical school in California. Depending on which Cal Grant you get, the money can be used for tuition, room and board, even books and school supplies. The best part is, the money is yours to keep and you don't have to pay it back. Complete your Cal Grant Application and return it to Miss Gildon in the College/Career Center by Friday, November 2nd.
