Fostering Better Lives Through Education

Assistance League of Sacramento awards scholarships to students attending community colleges in the Greater Sacramento area. Like many scholarship programs, our awards go to students with financial need and demonstrated ability, aptitude and a promise of a bright future. But, beyond those basic criteria, we seek to support students of any age who have or have had life challenges that are unusually difficult.

Our program identifies individuals with incredible resilience, determination, and commitment to education as a path to a better life for themselves and their families. We offer scholarships to New Recipients, current or former Foster Youth, and Previous Recipients in subsequent years at community colleges or four-year institutions. Basic eligibility for a first-time applicant is that the individual must be enrolled in a local community college. 

Our Scholarship awards are made in the spring of each year. A committee of dedicated chapter members review and select the recipients. The awards are granted at a special reception for recipients and their guests.
