LAS VEGAS – The Youth Council for Project 150, a local nonprofit that helps homeless, displaced and disadvantaged high students, is offering several scholarships to attend a Nevada college, university or accredited vocational training institute. Scholarship applications will be accepted now through May 9.
“As students finally reach that goal of graduating high school, we want them to know the journey has just begun,” said Senia Roybal, Project 150’s youth program coordinator. “We hope the scholarship opportunity helps them pursue higher education and opens a path to a successful future.”
Scholarship award levels range from $500 to $2,000 per student. High school and college students are eligible to apply if they meet the academic and community service requirements.
Scholarship interviews are scheduled to take place May 20. Scholarship award notifications will be sent by June 1 via email.
Project 150 will hold a celebratory scholarship awards luncheon on June 15 at Texas Station Hotel and Conference Center.
