    “If an LUHSD Senior is attending multiple LUHSD schools (e.g., FHS & HHS), he/she can only submit a Local Scholarship Application to the high school that he/she will be graduating from. The only exception to this is if the student participates in a specialty program that offers a specialty scholarship (i.e., ROP program, etc.). If that scholarship is only offered at the student’s “non-graduating school,” he/she may apply for the specific scholarship at the secondary school, but not other site specific scholarships. For further clarification, please speak to the College & Career Center Coordinators.”
