Students must take the SAT or ACT to qualify for a PSF scholarship--even if the school they'll be attending doesn't require one.
If you attend Paradise High School or Paradise Adventist Academy and have taken a college entrance exam (SAT or ACT) during your high school years, you may qualify to apply for an award from the Paradise Scholarship Foundation. Please note that you must take a college entrance exam to qualify for a PSF scholarship, even if the college you will attend does not require one for admission.
Each February, foundation volunteers work with school officials to identify students who meet the foundation’s established minimum scholastic requirements. These students are invited to an informational meeting at their school, where they learn about the application process and receive an application.
Qualified applicants who submit their paperwork on time will be scheduled for an interview with PSF board members in early spring.
Academic scholarships are awarded in the amount of $2,000 and are renewable for four years for a total value of $8,000. In 2014 the Foundation developed a Career and Technical Education Scholarship, encouraging a qualified student to consider technical education and trades as a career path.
