The Meghan Newman Memorial Scholarship Program

We offer scholarships to Torrance Unified School District’s high school seniors. The scholarships are open to Torrance High School seniors interested in the area of arts and crafts, including graphic arts, ceramics, sewing, painting, drawing, woodworking and much more. Scholarship awards vary from $250 to $1000.
