CDAR continues its over thirty-year tradition of awarding scholarships to high school seniors

The California Desert Association of REALTORS® awarded a total of $10,000 in academic scholarships to high school seniors in the Greater Palm Springs area, continuing the over thirty-year tradition of assisting students to aspire towards and achieve their higher education goals.
