Foundation to award college scholarships
The Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation and Institute has launched the 18th year of the Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation Scholars Program.
The scholarship program rewards seniors graduating from Ventura County high schools who have demonstrated leadership, character, communication skills, academic achievement and commitment to Ventura County throughout their four years of high school.
A total of $50,000 in college scholarships will be distributed to students for tuition, books, and room and board.
In addition, the students will select a teacher of their choice to receive $500 for use within their classroom.
Scholarships will be paid in full within the year awarded directly to the college of the scholar’s choice.
Students designated as program semifinalists will be invited, with their families, to a dinner at the Reagan Library in May, when the scholarship funds will be awarded.
Applicants will complete the entire application process online at www.reaganfoundation.org/scholarships.
Applications must be completed by Feb. 20 to qualify.
