Scholarships for good students with limited financial means
Good students attending elementary, middle, and high schools in Stockton and surrounding towns, from families with limited financial means,

Parent or Guardian Unemployed – or any other similar local, state or federal program, will suffice);

Note: The GPA requirement may be waived for students with special needs with the head coaches approval;
- contact information for one of the student's teachers, or an academic advisor;

Students on this scholarship are required to maintain good academic record (unles this requirement is waived, see above), and to regularly attend
