Scholarship Overview

This scholarship program was developed with Washoe County School District’s (WCSD) Children in Transition students in mind. The goal is to promote positive outcomes and opportunities for students who may have none at all.

The scholarship focuses on providing high school graduates the opportunity to enroll in higher education certification programs while gaining necessary skills to improve employment opportunities.  (Specific requirements listed below.)

Assistance League of Reno-Sparks partners with WCSD Children in Transition (CIT) program and Truckee Meadows Community College (TMCC) Workforce Development and Community Education (WDCE). Our partnerships do not restrict the applicant from entering another accredited vocational or technical training school located in Washoe County.

Scholarships are awarded on both need-based and/or merit-based evaluation.

Applicant may not be a chapter member, the relative of a chapter member, an Assisteens® member, or an employee of Assistance League of Reno-Sparks.
