Assistance League Sierra Foothills’ SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM consists of a Community Service Scholarship and Advantage Scholarship. The Community Scholarships are awarded to high school seniors who are enrolled in El Dorado County schools and active in community service. The Advantage Scholarship are given to individuals who have overcome significant challenges (family, financial, medical, emotional, etc.) in their lives. Scholarship recipients may choose to attend a trade school, a community college, or a four-year college/university.
The program began in 2014 with one scholarship award; we now have multiple scholarship awards annually. During the designated submission period, students begin their application process through the CALocalscholarships.org website. Assistance League receives and reviews the applications and then rates and prioritizes the candidates before making a final selection. Scholarship recipients are notified through their respective schools and given the scholarship during the schools’ award ceremonies.
Since its inception three years ago, the SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM has awarded several thousand dollars in scholarship funds to outstanding local graduates who have enriched and improved the lives of others.
