Pursuit of Scholarship
Pursuit of Scholarship, proposed by Mr. Buck Wong, is a project to push students to apply for scholarships. Our short-term goal is to have students submit over 100 scholarships by the end of November. Our long-term goal is to train students to apply for financial aid, develop a culture of affirmative action to seek scholarships, and heighten awareness for the need to fund a higher education.
If registered seniors submit over 100 or more scholarship applications, then those who show proof and document that they indeed have submitted five or more applications will earn a free celebration meal. The sponsoring organization will fund the celebration meal (Lincoln Heights Education Project, Inc., California Scholarship Federation, MECHA, and Asian Club).
Sign up period will be from Monday, Oct. 5th through Friday, Oct. 16, 2015.
Pursuit of Scholarship will begin on Monday, Oct. 19, 2015 and end on Nov. 29, 2015.
