Disneyland Resort Scholarship Overview

The Disneyland Resort Scholarship Program aims to help high school seniors in funding for their college needs. In this program, 10 high school seniors will each be given up to $5,000 of scholarship money which can be used to pay for tuition, books, miscellaneous expenses and other related education costs. The scholarship is awarded to students who not only display financial need or academic excellence, but as well as dedication to volunteer work and community leadership.

The grant money awarded to scholarship recipients may be used for tuition in public and private colleges and universities not only within the State of California, but in other institutions across the United States.


The Disneyland Resort Scholarship Program is open to all high school seniors currently residing in Orange County, California. Applicants should be citizens of the United States, and must have a minimum GPA of 3.0.

Aside from educational requirements, applicants must also provide proof of at least 50 hours of community service through a non-profit organization during the past 12 months prior to application, or a minimum of 100 hours of community service during their high school years. This scholarship is not based solely on financial need; applicants, regardless of financial status, would have to show proof of volunteerism and community service activity in order to qualify for the grant.
