Scholarships for Senior Students

The PTA Community Partner Scholarship is a program which provides scholarship opportunities for graduating seniors.


The committee includes Tahoma School District parents, community leaders, business owners, THS administrators, and THS counselors who work together to strengthen the program. The focus is to honor all paths students may have planned after graduation and as such offer scholarship opportunities for ALL.


This is accomplished through fundraising, collaboration with community, businesses, companies, corporations, individuals, clubs, and organizations. Scholarship recipients are based on future-ready skills, academic testing, grade point average, volunteerism, activities, personal interests, essay writing, job experience, personal recommendations, and honoring varied pathways of individuals. 

The Tahoma Community Partner Scholarship application portal will be open to seniors starting January 31st at 5:00 PM Pacific Time and closing March 18th at 5:00 PM Pacific Time. The application program has an automatic timer and is exact for Pacific Standard Time. Absolutely no late applications will be processed. Applications can be accessed at http://scholarships.tahomapta.com.

Scholarship Applications are due March 18th at 5:00 PM Pacific Time. No late applications will be accepted.

The application process will show which sections have been completed and what still needs to be done. Due to letters of recommendation getting spammed or sent to other folders in some emails, we strongly suggest you be attentive to the person you have requested and email them directly if your letter has not returned to your profile for submission. Remember you will not see the letter itself, but you will receive a check mark next to the progress of recommendation in your profile. 

SUGGESTED TIMELINE:

February 4 - finish all basic application information AND send out recommendation requests
February 11 - begin all required essays
February 25 - follow up on recommendation requests AND finish all essays
March 4 - verify requests were returned, recheck all progress and finalize any incomplete items
March 11 - portal closes at the end of this week, no exceptions. Make all final follow-ups
