Education is a Powerful Defense Against Poverty

Assistance League of Orange recognizes outstanding graduating seniors by offering individual scholarships based on the following criteria: a student’s academic achievements, financial need, high school activities, extracurricular activities, community service, and leadership qualities. In addition, specific scholarships are dedicated to those students who are pursuing certain areas of future study. All of these awards are to encourage students who have the potential to make a difference in our community and the nation. Members of Assistance League of Orange and other local Assistance Leagues and Auxiliaries and their immediate and extended families are not eligible to apply.

Scholarship recipients often write back once they are settled in school and even upon college graduation to inform us of their achievements.
