New Scholarship Opportunity!
The SHC Youth Leadership and Scholarship Program assists youth with financial aid processes, mental health advocacy and referrals, professional legal advocacy and referrals, and assistance in locating and establishing local contacts for general support and services. Additionally, the program also offers young people meaningful opportunities to engage in advocacy while providing sustained support services to help ensure graduation and success in life. Further, it aims to build a stable peer and adult support network for recipients, before, during, and after their college careers, and into their transition into the workforce.
Applicants must have been born on or after Nov. 10, 1999, be entering college for the first time during the 2020-2021 school year, and have experienced homelessness within the last six years. Undocumented students who meet these criteria are eligible to apply.
Students will be awarded a $2,000 scholarship, a trip to a national awards ceremony (travel and expenses included), and a second trip to reconnect and engage in policy advocacy in Washington, DC, one year after the initial scholarship award (all expenses included).
