Grant and Scholarship Information from Senator Anderson

Friday, January 20, 2017

Dear Friends,

As you, your children, or someone you know embark on the higher education journey, 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.

I’ve asked my staff to assemble this list of financial resources and scholarship opportunities available to you. This list is not officially endorsed by the State Senate, however, was created to assist you in your goal of continuing your education.

We have made an effort to find a diverse set of scholarship opportunities that will be useful and relevant to you. It’s important to note that many of these opportunities have upcoming 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
