SCHOLARSHIP POLICY:

Applicable Income Limits
Friends uses the State of California Housing & Community Development (HCD)’s annual income limits as a guide to participant scholarship eligibility. The income limits are published annually by HCD and are based upon the Area Median Income and family size. They are available by clicking here. The income limits as applicable to this policy will be updated annually on July 1st based upon the most recent limits available through HCD.

Unusual Need
If a family does not meet the income limit requirements, or needs more assistance than is available for their income category, they should include a written statement with their application explaining the family’s need. The request will be considered by the Board if funds are available.

Application Submission, Review and Priority
A copy of the required application is found at the link above. Applicant income is self-reported. Applicants are encouraged to submit the application through e-mail for the fastest processing. However, completed applications may also be called in at the provided phone number as well.
Application submittal must occur within the timeline noted on the application document itself. These timelines will be determined in advance of each session by the scholarship committee and noted on the application document.
Applications will be processed on a first-come, first-served basis. If more applications are received than funds are available, priority will be given to the lowest income applicants. Applicants requesting exceptions to the standard policies due to unusual need will be given the lowest priority.

Statement of Non-Discrimination
Friends does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, religion, sex, gender identity, familial status, disability, age, ancestry, marital status, citizenship, or sexual orientation.
