PTSA Scholarships

The PTSA supports Woodside High School students by providing college scholarships to seniors every year.


For 2017-18, the PTSA will be giving out FIVE $1,000.00 scholarships. Click here for the online form or download the paper application.  Any member of the Class of 2018 can apply.


Last year we were pleased to give out $5,000 total in scholarship money to 10 students. These scholarships, unlike many scholarships, are given only to Woodside High School students who have demonstrated the 8 Conditions of Student Success:

  • BELONGING – Feeling like you are part of a group while knowing you are special for who you are.

  • HEROES – Having someone who believes in you and who is there when you need them.

  • SENSE OF ACCOMPLISHMENT – Being recognized for many different types of success, including hard work and being a good person.

  • FUN & EXCITEMENT – Enjoying what you are doing, whether at work, school, or play.

  • CURIOSITY & CREATIVITY – Asking “Why?” and “Why not?” about the world around you.

  • SPIRIT OF ADVENTURE – Being excited to try new things, even when you are not sure if you will be good at them.
