Finally, some real help for the financially distressed in California.
Suite Solutions is offering $30,000 in college scholarships to the children of parents who filed for bankruptcy in California.
That's some serious cash for higher ed for some families that could seriously use it.
Suite Solutions is focusing on California, a state that has had more than its share of financial struggle.
Three finalists will receive $5,000 each and 15 more students will get $1,000.
Qualifications for the bankruptcy scholarship are:
- Child whose parents filed for bankruptcy in California
- Southern California resident.
- High school senior graduating in the spring of 2009 or current undergraduate college student enrolled for the upcoming fall semester at a two-year or four-year accredited college.
- Student who demonstrates participation in his/her school or community through academic achievement, participation in extracurricular activities and/or community service.
