PTSA Scholarships

This year, the North Atlanta High School PTSA and the Georgia PTA are again offering scholarships to qualified seniors.  See below for information about each.
NAHS PTSA Scholarship

The North Atlanta High School PTSA is sponsoring a $500 scholarship for a NAHS senior again this year! The scholarship will be awarded to a student who is well-rounded and exemplifies the PTSA spirit of community service and volunteerism. Students who are members of the NAHS PTSA as of March 30, 2018, who have a cumulative weighted average of 3.0 or above, and who will be attending a college or university in the fall of 2018 may apply (children of current NAHS PTSA Executive Board members are not eligible to apply).

The scholarship application can be found here and must be turned into a College & Career Center Advisor by the end of the school day on March 30, 2018. We encourage all eligible seniors to apply!  Haven’t yet joined the NAHS PTSA?  Become a PTSA member here.


Georgia PTSA Scholarship

Georgia PTA Scholarships assist students who have successfully completed high school and who are interested in furthering their education in a college, university or post-secondary institution. Georgia PTA Scholarships, the first of which was established in 1963, are funded solely through memberships, local unit PTA, Council contributions and other donations. The number of awards and amounts of each scholarship vary year-to-year depending on the donations.

  1. Is a graduating senior of a Georgia high school with a PTA/PTSA.
  2. Parent/guardian is a current member of PTA/PTSA. The PTA/PTSA must be in good standing (i.e., dues paid, approved bylaws on file).
  3. Student AND parent/guardian must provide a copy of PTA/PTSA membership card with application.
  4. Will attend a college, university, post-secondary institution or trade/vocational school during the upcoming school year.
