SALEF's "Fulfilling Our Dreams Scholarship" fund is making higher education a reality for Central American and Latino students, including AB 540 students, with over 1,000 scholarships provided since 1998. SALEF's "Fulfilling Our Dreams Scholarship" Fund offers financial assistance and support to undergraduate, graduate and professional students, often making the difference in whether a student can attend college or not.
The Scholarships are open to all qualifying students regardless of immigration status. SALEF promotes giving back to our communities, thus scholarship recipients are expected to complete community service hours and receipt of the scholarship award is dependent on completion of their pledge.
Health Career Scholarship: Scholarships are offered to students pursuing health related fields. This includes graduating high school seniors, community colleges, vocational/ trade schools, undergraduate, students pursuing a Master in Public Health (MPH) and students in Medical and/or Dentistry schools. Scholarship money is generously provided by The California Wellness Foundation.
