SCHOLARSHIPS

2022 Alhambra Chamber of Commerce Scholarship Application

The Alhambra Chamber of Commerce is once again providing scholarships to graduating high school seniors from high schools in Alhambra. The up-to-$1000 scholarships will be provided to graduating seniors who will be attending a community college, or four-year institution and who are currently working 4-hours per week, on average. The deadline to apply is April 30, 2022 at 5:00 PM.

In partnering with local businesses, the Chamber is working to support local students in pursuit of higher education as they face the challenge of significantly rising costs of obtaining a post-secondary degree. In service to its mission to foster  a community where all businesses can thrive, these awards will support those who are already working to support our local economy by choice or by necessity. With the responsibility and time it takes to hold down a job while going to school, these working students have less time for other activities that might normally help attract scholarships or aid to support their pursuit of higher education. The Chamber’s scholarship program recognizes that and seeks to fill in some of the financial gap. 

Eligibility:

    • Seniors who attend an Alhambra Unified  School District High School or Ramona Convent
    • Plan to enroll as a 1st year college student in a U.S. accredited 4-year college, university, or community college  as a full-time, or part-time student, (minimum 6 units) degree-seeking student in the Fall of 2022 
    • Applicants must have been employed since at least January 1, 2022 for at least 4 hours per week (on average). 
    • Students have a letter of reference from their employer and their high school counselor
    • Applicants must complete the online application form by April 30, 2022 by 5pm Pacific.

Application Process:

Interested applicants must complete this online application, which includes basic information. Before completing the application, be prepared to upload the following documents:

  1. A letter from their employer indicating their employment timeframe 

  2. A letter of recommendation from their counselor. 

  3. A response to the following prompt (in 200-300 words): What have you learned from your work experience and how does that experience shape your future goals?

Recipients will be evaluated on the completeness of the application, their answers to the question and references. Typically, one student per high school is selected for the award. Scholarship recipients will be notified by May 15, 2022, and checks disbursed upon proof of enrollment. 

The Chamber scholarships are coordinated through the Alhambra Foundation, which has a mission to improve the Alhambra community.
