The San Luis Obispo Mothers for Peace annually accepts applications for two scholarships. The deadline for the applications is the March 21.
An annual scholarship of $1000 is offered to a college or university student who is of junior or senior standing in 2010-2011. The student’s college or residence needs to be within San Luis Obispo or Santa Barbara Counties. Applicants should have educational and career goals that will have a positive impact on issues of peace, social justice, or the environment. An on-going commitment to one or more of these issues is essential in order for the application to receive consideration. There is no restriction on the field of major study.
A second award of $500 is offered to a graduating high school senior from any high school, public or private, within San Luis Obispo County only. Applicants need to be able to show past and current involvement in issues of peace, social justice or the environment. The award is intended to help in furthering the student’s education in the field of the recipient’s choice.
