Peninsula High School boasts one of the largest high school scholarship programs in the state, the Peninsula Hawks Scholarship Fund. It provides nearly $240,000 per year in awards to graduates of our school. The awards can be used for any type of post-secondary education, from short training programs to a full-fledged university, and for any type of major whether vocational or academic.

Students apply by completing a scholarship portfolio during their senior year. In it they provide information about their accomplishments during their high school years and their future plans. This portfolio serves as the application for a large number of awards, given mostly by local donor families, businesses, and organizations.
