Applying for Scholarships

Few scholarship applications are still open. Applications for the 2025-2026 school year will be available in Fall of 2024.

Students may apply for a maximum of two scholarships. Students may be awarded one scholarship only.  For additional scholarship questions, please contact the Santa Margarita Eagle Foundation at 949-766-6080 or

Many of the scholarships require a FACTS application. If parents have already completed a FACTS application for tuition assistance for the upcoming school year, you do not need to complete a second FACTS application.

Pro Tips

  • Print in ink if writing your answers by hand - No applications in pencil please
  • Double check applications for misspellings and correct use of grammar. Remember these are academic scholarships and should reflect your best work.
  • Single sided applications only. Do not turn in double sided applications.
  • Applications sent electronically must be scanned as a PDF. Please make sure you have received an email confirming receipt of application.
  • It is recommended that students take time and diligence when completing their applications. Their responses should reflect the history and criteria of what the scholarship represents. Many of the applications are forwarded to committees and donors for review.
  • Expand on your answers by giving concrete examples.


  • Thank you notes must be written in ink on a greeting card or stationary.
  • Please proofread your thank you note.
