Effron and Goldberg Scholarship Program
The Effron and Goldberg College Scholarships were established to provide high achieving Hoover and Crawford High School graduates with financial support and advising to successfully navigate and graduate from college.
Joseph and Dorothy Goldberg Scholarship
The Joseph & Dorothy Goldberg Scholarship is a competitive scholarship for seniors at Crawford High School. It is funded and administered by Price Philanthropies and San Diego Foundation. The Scholarship was established to honor the memories of Joe and Dorothy Goldberg who lived in the Talmadge neighborhood for many years and were friends of the Price family.
Stephen Effron Scholarship
The Stephen Effron Scholarship is a competitive scholarship for seniors at Hoover High School. It is funded and administered by Price Philanthropies. The Scholarship was established to honor the memory of Stephen Effron who graduated from Hoover High School in 1959 and was the cousin of Robert Price.
Each spring, Price Philanthropies Foundation invites high achieving Hoover and Crawford High School seniors with financial need to apply for one of our college scholarships — the Stephen Effron Scholarship at Hoover and the Joseph and Dorothy Goldberg Scholarship at Crawford.
Each scholarship provides up to $6,000 per year for up to five (5) years. Additionally, recipients have access to support and academic resources provided by Avenues for Success. Up to six student recipients are selected each year from both high schools.
