CCEA Member Grants & Student Scholarships

CCEA 2024 Student Scholarship Applications

The Citrus County Education Association (CCEA), representing the teachers and the education support professionals (ESP) of Citrus County, is offering 4 scholarships of  $750 each.  Three of the scholarships are for one graduating senior at each of the three Citrus County high schools – Citrus High School, Crystal River High School, and Lecanto High School.  The fourth scholarship is an OTHER  School scholarship for a graduating senior of a CCEA member who does not attend one of the three Citrus County high schools –  example: A high school outside of Citrus County (parent/guardian works in Citrus and is a CCEA member but the child attends a high school outside of Citrus County).
