The Glendale Latino Association is inviting local Latino and Hispanic students to apply for its 2022 scholarships, which are to be awarded later this spring.
Applicable students should be graduating seniors from Glendale High School, Hoover High School, Crescenta Valley High School, Clark Magnet High School, Daily High School, Glendale Adventist Academy and Holy Family High School. Students at Glendale Community College who are transferring to a four-year college or university are also invited to apply.
Students are asked to prepare and submit a personal essay about their Latino or Hispanic heritage and highlighting the importance of education to their lives. Applications must also include the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), academic transcripts and the contact info for a teacher, coach, employer, guidance counselor or other person who can provide a letter of recommendation.
Applicants are not limited to any major or area of study. Scholarship awards range from $500 to $2,000, and recipients are required to attend the scholarship celebration in May.
High school applicants must submit applications via the Community Foundation of the Verdugos — cfverdugos.org/how-to-apply-for-scholarships — by March 2. GCC applicants must apply via the scholarship office on campus — glendale.edu/financial-aid-fees/scholarships — by March 25.
