Scholarships

The Marina Foundation has six scholarship opportunities for graduating seniors - five scholarships specifically for those attending Marina High School, and one scholarship for graduating seniors residing in the City of Marina, who may be attending another high school in Monterey County.

Every year, the Marina Founders (formally the Don Livermore), the Capt. Gordon R. Nakagawa, the Jack Stewart, the Wight Family, the Timothy C. Wheelis, and the Roger Williams Scholarships award two scholarships to qualified graduating high school seniors. The scholarships are granted based on verification of school enrollment and give preference to those students with exceptional community service.

Seniors can now apply for up to four scholarships using a "common" application for Marina High School. This "common" application includes the Marina Founders, the Gordon Nakagawa, the Wight Family, and the Timothy Wheelis Scholarships.
