Scholarship deadline approaches


With the holidays upon us and a short break from school, now is the perfect time for sophomore, junior, and senior students attending La Jolla High School, La Jolla Country Day School, The Bishop’s School and The Preuss School to write and submit their essays for the Coastwise Prize for Investing Excellence scholarship.

The Coastwise Prize seeks to inspire students to set personal and financial goals, to explore the world of investing, and to build a foundation of financial awareness, control, and stability. The scholarship gives the young people a chance to win thousands of dollars toward their college education. The top finalists will be invited to attend an awards dinner where they can socialize with other peers and listen to insightful words from a handful of influential speakers.

Eligible students are asked to submit a 1,000 word essay by Jan. 13. Details at
