IMPERIAL COUNTY — Imperial County Office of Education’s Foundation for Education will provide 10 $500 scholarships to students in alternative education or continuation schools; or students in special education programs who will attend a career technical school, community college, or university in Fall 2021. 

The deadline to submit a scholarship application is Friday, April 30, at 5 p.m.

By offering these scholarships, the Foundation for Education hopes to increase college access and success for some of Imperial County’s most vulnerable students. Scholarships may 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.
