Any graduating high school senior whose parent(s) is currently an active member of CUTA is eligible to apply for a Dependent Scholarship.

These “at large” scholarships are available to any graduating senior in CUSD, including dependents of CUTA members. Chico High and Pleasant Valley High each receive three scholarships.
