Last week, the Scholarship Foundation of Santa Barbara came by Youth Interactive to speak with some of our young entrepreneurs about applying for college and possible scholarship opportunities! The Foundation has been providing students of Santa Barbara county with scholarships and financial aid services since 1962. Just last year, they administered almost 3,000 scholarships totaling $8.7 million!
With the majority of our students ranging between 14 and 18 years old, we are thrilled to support these amazing youth while they figure out their future education plans! Ielaf Altoma, a representative from the Scholarship Foundation, was able to answer numerous questions about the college application process and provide insight on what the college experience entails. We hope this support will help to guide our students as they embark on the exciting experience of applying to schools and continuing their education!
All of our students are so bright and talented - we know they will go very far in life on whatever path they take! We are just so excited to see exactly what that will be!
