The Cinco Ranch High School Parent Teacher Student Association (CRHS PTSA) will award scholarships in the amount of $500 to qualifying students. Our annual goal is to match scholarship distributions to the total amount of PTSA dues we have received. Scholarship monies are disbursed directly to the accredited educational institutions in which the scholarship recipients will be attending.The purpose of the Achievement Scholarships is to recognize CRHS graduating seniors for their contributions of service, leadership, involvement and academics.
The student and at least one parent or guardian must be CRHS PTSA members by Oct. 1 of the student’s junior and senior years.
