The Mexican American Educational Guidance Association is a local, nonprofit, all-volunteer organization dedicated to helping Mexican Americans and other Latinx students attain education beyond high school. We do this by awarding scholarships to qualifying seniors in the San Dieguito Union High School District.
MAEGA Scholarships must be used in 2023-2024 for four-year colleges or universities, two-year and community colleges, or accredited technical/vocational schools. If our funds allow, recipients may apply to renew their MAEGA Scholarships for their sophomore year in college.
For further information, including deadlines, please email Linda Grensted at [email protected].
