RECA SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM



RECA offers a scholarship program for graduating high school seniors as a service to the community. Scholarships are 
funded by donations from RECA members and friends and fundraising events sponsored by RECA. The scholarship program recognizes students who have good academic records and have also spent time in community service activities. It encourages outstanding high school seniors to continue their education beyond high school.

The application deadline is March 31st each year. Applications can be downloaded from RECA's Web site, and they are also available from counselors at most Sonoma County high schools beginning in February.
