Man of La Mancha Scholarship


Graduating High School students WITH A DREAM and who attend school (or are home-schooled) in the San Miguel Watershed are eligible to apply for scholarship money to be used for college/university or other institutes of higher learning. 

If you are a student planning to attend college but defer enrollment, you should apply in your senior year of high school. Monies awarded to students deferring will be held back for a maximum of one year until the student enrolls in his or her first year of college/university or other institute of higher learning.

This is not a need-based scholarship program, but rather one that is intended to support students so that they may be better able to focus on and stretch toward their dream.


The 2019 Man of La Mancha Scholarship application is available below. Please mark your calendars: all applications are due March 18th and interviews will take place on April 3rd, 2019.

When you apply, please complete and submit the online Man of La Mancha Grant Application.  In addition to providing us with specific information about what and where you plan to study, you will also be asked to provide a narrative about your dream for the future.  


The due date for all applications is March 18, 2019 at 11:59 PM. Late applications will not be accepted. Interviews will take place on April 3rd, 2019.
