Scholarship Resources and Links
One of the goals of the West Covina Youth Council is to help educate the youth of the community on various scholarship programs available to the community. There is literally millions of dollars given away each year in the form of college scholarships and grants. Finding the program that fits a certain individuals needs can seem a little overwhelming at times. Financial aid programs come in all shapes and sizes. Each program is structured differently and each has their own eligibility requirements. Here is a brief overview of some of the more popular financial aid programs that are available. Be sure to also contact the Financial Aid Office for the College/University you wish to attend for additional financial resources specifically offered to their applicants.
