Assistance League® of Diablo Valley began offering scholarships in 1999. One of eight philanthropic programs, Scholarships provides financial aid for as much as $5000 to qualifying high school students, community college students, as well as foster youth in the Contra Costa community who are planning to enter a community college, a four year university, or a vocational school in the fall of 2013. Applicants must demonstrate the need and desire to further their education, maintain a specified grade point average, participate in campus life, be hands-on involved in community service, and provide a timeline for academic and career goals.
This is a reminder that the deadline for community college consideration is March 1, 2013, while the deadline for the high school applicants is March 8. The deadline for foster youth is March 15. Detailed information and application forms are available on chapter website: diablovalley.assistanceleague.org.
