The pilot phase of the program is focused on awarding scholarships to families within the Mexican, Guatemalan and Filipino diaspora in the Los Angeles, California area. The Family Scholarship Program is intended to help two members of the same family move up the economic development ladder through education. Scholarships may be used for tuition for college/university education language acquisition classes, technical/skill training, and/or financial literacy. For example, one family member may request assistance to attend college and the other family member may request assistance to attend English as a Second Language (ESL) course.
Female students at West Los Angeles College are likely to be eligible for some of the grants and scholarships funded by PEO, a philanthropic and educational organization. The local PEO Chapter GT, which has members residing in West Los Angeles and Culver City, would be happy to assist women in obtaining educational assistance.
