The Disneyland® Resort Scholarship Program awards $5,000 scholarships to ten high school seniors who have demonstrated excellence in volunteerism and leadership and who are committed to making a difference in our community. By granting scholarships to students who strive to improve our community, the Disneyland® Resort aims to make the dream of higher education a reality.
The Disneyland Resort Scholarship Program provides scholarships to students with great potential, financial need, strong academic demonstration and community/civic involvement. Scholarships are meant to bridge the financial gap that college-bound students face and assist students who excel academically and demonstrate leadership in the community to pursue higher education, with a scholarship of $5,000 to defray unmet needs such as: tuition, room and board, lab fees, and books.
