L.A. Cash for College awarded $30,000 and Wells Fargo added $25,000, for a total of $55,000 in 2018 scholarships to L.A. youth!
“We are incredibly grateful to Wells Fargo for giving us the ability to expand our reach even further. With their help, we have an even greater ability to ensure the underserved youth have access to the college dream,” said David Rattray, Executive Vice President, L.A. Area Chamber of Commerce. “Additionally, too many students are unaware that college can be both accessible and affordable. L.A. Cash for College scholarships are used to motivate students to do something that will help them succeed and obtain even more money to help defray the cost of college.”
Held in October at Los Angeles Trade Technical College, the 16thAnnual L.A. Cash for College Convention gave students the opportunity to learn about financial aid, college life, career pathways and meet with college recruiters. Nearly 7,000 students and their families participated in the convention.
The L.A. Cash for College scholarships encourage college enrollment, do not displace local, state or federal financial aid and are awarded regardless of immigration status. The Scholarship Awards Reception is a chance to celebrate with the scholarship winners and their families, support them as they get ready to go to college, and encourage them to succeed.
