2018-19 SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM AVAILABLE
The City of La Puente awards scholarships to high school seniors, adult education students, and Veterans returning home from service to attend school. The Scholarship Program was created to expand educational opportunities for students who have demonstrated financial need, good character, and a strong desire to obtain a college education; but without financial assistance, would not be able to attend. Scholarships will be awarded to La Puente residents who meet the scholarship criteria in the application packet.
Application packets will be available beginning February 1, 2018 and may be obtained at local schools, by clicking the link Scholarship Application 2018-19 or at the La Puente Community Center. All applications and supporting documentation must be received by Thursday, March 29, 2018 at 5:00 p.m. for the following Fall Semester of the academic year. The City of La Puente’s Education Commission will review all applications and supporting documentation and make its recommendations to the City Council in April 2018.
The awarded scholarship money can be used towards tuition and books. The scholarships will be paid directly to the school where the applicant has been accepted or reimbursed to the student upon receipt of proof of expenditure. Once awarded a scholarship, a scholarship recipient will not be eligible for future scholarships from the City. If you have any questions regarding the Scholarship Program, please contact Recreation Coordinator Adriana Dominguez at (626) 855-1560.
