(ten scholarships being offered)...The Foundation For Education is offering the $500 scholarships.

They will go to students in alternative education/continuation schools, or students in special education programs. By offering these scholarships, the Foundation hopes to increase college access and success for some of Imperial County's most vulnerable students. The scholarships can be used for the payment of tuition, academic fees, room, board, and the purchase of educational materials, books or equipment. Students who wish to apply may submit a personal essay or a video, along with a completed application, two letters of recommendation, and their high school transcript. The deadline to submit an application is 5:00 pm April 30. For all the details and more information go to foundation.icoe.org/scholarship.
