*A Graduating High School Student is a student who has completed his/her high school requirements and whose college tuition is not being paid by their school district. For purposes of awarding Bonanza Booster Club scholarships, students attending college with their tuition paid by their school district are not considered graduating high school students and are not eligible to be considered for scholarships until completing their ‘Advanced Diploma’ or similar program.
**Proof of Enrollment may consist of provision of a Student ID, an official tuition bill, schedule of classes, or enrollment verification form or letter from the school confirming that the student is currently enrolled in courses for a particular quarter or semester.
