CCAH Members,

We are pleased to update you on the progress of the Douglas Young & Daniel C. Logue Scholarship Program.  The CCAH Board started the Scholarship program to promote education and expand opportunities for residents of affordable housing in California.  We specifically designed it to benefit students living in CCAH member properties.

Progress to Date:

CCAH raised $23,758 in donations to the program since 2011.  $8,500 in scholarship funds have been awarded to eight deserving high-school seniors and one college student.  In 2016 we received 4 applications; the winners were Melanie Saunders from Oak Tree Apartments in Temecula, CA and Miguel Flores from Casitas Del Sol in Livingston, CA.

 

2016 Goals:

We’d like to increase the number of applicants applying to the program so we can more broadly distribute the funds.

Moving forward, CCAH has voted to allow the below:

–The awarded recipients from 2015 to continue to reapply for an additional $250 twice a year.  One time in June and the other in January the following year.

–CCAH has also decided to award two new recipients each year with the above same opportunities.

 

Please encourage your site managers to talk to the college-bound students at their properties and urge them to take advantage of this opportunity.  The CCAH scholarships are not only available to high school seniors, but also to people who have been out of high school for a while and have decided to enroll in a college or vocational school in order to expand their future opportunities.

We have enclosed a flyer in this packet that can be displayed in the community room or property management office as well as a copy of the simple application.
