George Grotefend Scholarship

The George Grotefend Scholarship provides funding for students who graduate successfully after having attended all four years of high school in Shasta County and who plan to continue their education at a four-year college or university or other accredited institution of higher learning in the State of California. Applications are accepted from high school seniors, and awardees are selected based on merit and financial need from the annual pool of applicants.

Dr. George Grotefend was a dentist and a member of a prominent Shasta County pioneer family. During his lifetime, he involved himself with ranching and mining in addition to running a very busy dental practice. Upon his death, the bulk of his estate was put into a trust to provide scholarships to deserving high school graduates from Shasta County in Northern California.
