Grant and Scholarship Information from Senator Anderson

Friday, January 20, 2017

Dear Friends,

As you or your children begin to prepare for college or other education, I am aware of the financial barriers that many of us as parents or students face. Having three children go through this process, I understand the value behind scholarship opportunities and the importance behind financial assistance.

For this reason, my staff has assembled a list of financial resources available for you. The list is not officially endorsed by the State Senate. However, the list is meant to aid you in the ultimate goal of continuing your educational careers.

We have made an effort to find a diverse set of scholarship opportunities that will be useful and relevant to you. It should also be noted, that many of these opportunities have deadlines so we recommend being mindful as these dates approach. Also, if there are any other resources you would like to see included in the list, please send them to Michael.Botello@sen.ca.gov and we would be happy to add them.

It’s an honor to serve you.
Joel Anderson
Senator
