SUPPORT THIS INDEPENDENT JOURNALISM
The article you’re about to read is from our reporters doing their important work — investigating, researching, and writing their stories. We want to provide informative and inspirational stories that connect you to the people, issues and opportunities within our community. Journalism requires lots of resources. Today, our business model has been interrupted by the pandemic; the vast majority of our advertisers’ businesses have been impacted. That’s why the DP Times is now turning to you for financial support. Learn more about our new Insider’s program here. Thank you.

The Dana Point Historical Society has announced it will again be awarding two $1,000 scholarships to deserving high school seniors. The Doris Walker Scholarship is for students living in Dana Point and attending Dana Hills High School. The Lucy Chavarrias-Saunderson Scholarship is for students living in Capistrano Beach and attending San Juan Hills High School or San Clemente High School. The scholarship is based on merit and need, with a focus on community service.
In years past, the Dana Point Historical Society has put on a fiesta to celebrate the scholarship recipients. However, due social distancing directives amid the coronavirus pandemic, details for a celebration are unclear at this time.
Applications are available online through each school’s scholarship program. Interested seniors should contact their academic advisor with questions. The deadline for submitting applications is Friday, April 17.
