Pasadena Water and Power would like to offer very beneficial Educational Scholarships for the academic year of 2020-2021. The organization offers up to two scholarships to talented and aspiring students each year. These educational scholarships carry a goal of helping students overcome the financial obstacles that are preventing them from furthering their education. These scholarships are reserved for students who are currently seniors at a high school in the city of Pasadena and planning to be enrolled as full-time students in a two or four-year accredited post-secondary institution in the upcoming 2021-2022 academic year.
Through these scholarships, the organization wants to ensure that no student has to limit their education or drop out due to a lack of their household income. These funds will work as a morale booster for students and motivate them to give their best during their studies. Accessing higher education can be difficult for students who are from a poorer background. These scholarships will prove a great help for such students. These programs will support Pasadena’s students with their education that will result in more future leaders in the city of Pasadena. These will find the top talents in the city and assist them to become what they want to be.
