ALF Opens 2017 Hillgren Scholarship Applications

The Assistance League of Flintridge said it is now accepting applications for the Mary Ellen Hillgren Memorial Scholarship. Two scholarships of $1,000 each are awarded annually to La Cañada High School seniors who will be attending a four-year college or university in the fall.
The applications are available on the ALF website at: ALFlintridge.org.
In addition to the application, students are asked to submit an unofficial transcript and a 300-word essay describing how their activities outside of school have helped build their character. The deadline for submitting applications is April 3. The scholarships will be presented at the Senior Awards Ceremony at La Cañada High School.
The scholarship was established in 1995 to honor Hillgren, who served as president of ALF as well as two years as president of National Assistance League. Hillgren was an advocate for the public school system and wanted to encourage students who demonstrated exceptional interest in extracurricular activities and community service, as well as academic achievement.
Applications must be returned to Hillgren Scholarship Committee, Assistance League of Flintridge, at 4607 Oakwood Ave., La Cañada, CA 91011.
