Operation Scholarships

Giving Assistance to Further Education
and to Enrich Classroom Programs

Our growing annual scholarship program awards financial aid to graduating high school seniors in our local districts. Financial assistance is a necessity for many college bound students.

Operation Scholarships receives high school scholarship applications from Murrieta Dollars for Scholars and Temecula Dollars for Scholars. We work directly with Lake Elsinore High School District to provide scholarships to their graduating seniors.

Each year, on a rotation basis, teachers from the school districts we serve, Temecula Valley Unified, Murrieta Valley Unified, Menifee Union, Lake Elsinore Unified and Romoland School District are given the opportunity to apply for grants up to $500 each. The grants are awarded to enable teachers to provide enrichment activities for their students. The committee reads the applications and awards the grants.

Teacher at Murrieta Mesa High School applied for pipe and drape room dividers to increase space and numbers of student who can participate in Dance PE.
Ms. Cross was awarded a $500 grant to establish a Sensory Garden at Romoland Elementary School. In her grant application, Ms. Cross stated that students who engage in sensory activities, like gardening, can increase their academic skills.
