Milken Family Foundation
Selected scholars will receive a $2,000 scholarship (paid over four years), a recognition dinner, and an annual retreat. Milken scholars also have access to ongoing counseling and support for personal, academic, and professional issues; assistance with career-related experiences through internships and shadowing opportunities; and a graduate fund, which assists students as they prepare for the world of work or graduate school.
The Milken Family Foundation expects to select between 10 and 20 new Milken Scholars this year.
The Milken Scholars Program celebrates and supports academic achievement, demonstrated leadership, as well as school and community service among college-bound students with financial need who have overcome social, economic or other obstacles. Milken Scholars must commit to attend all annual program activities (expenses paid), including a three-day retreat, and maintain a 3.0 grade point average throughout their undergraduate college careers. Scholars are also encouraged to participate in community service activities in their home and/or school community.
Applications and nomination forms are available online at the Milken Family Foundation website or at Los Angeles, CA, New York City, and Washington D.C. high school guidance offices. Each applicant ... sign up for full scholarship deadline information.
