Each scholar received an award of $500 each. Jing Vida, President and Rea P. Lazo, Vice-President and Scholarship Committee Chair, announced the winners and led the event. In tandem with Lazo, Co-Chair And 1st Vice President Janelle Parra coordinated the 2021 Scholarship program.
For their required essays, this year’s applicants were asked to write about racial equity. They also must submit an application, letters of recommendations and school transcript. One of the evaluators Sally Anderson (retired LAFACE member And LAPD Sr Personnel Analyst said the essays were “well thought out and impressive.” See one of the Essays below by Jamie Fetters.
