The Simon Youth Foundation is now accepting applications for its Simon Youth Community Scholarships.
One-time, $1,500 scholarships are awarded in every community that is home to a Simon Mall, Mills, or Premium Outlets center, including Stoneridge Shopping Center in Pleasanton. High students who will be graduating in 2020 may apply online at syf.org/scholarships.
The deadline is Feb. 15.
Scholarship recipients will be selected by International Scholarship and Tuition Services. Applicants will be evaluated based on academic promise, financial need, written response, work experience, as well as community and extracurricular involvement.
Winners will be notified in May 2020.
Last year, the local scholarship went to Carly Glasson, a graduate of San Ramon Valley High School in Danville, who is currently studying psychology and criminology at the University of Colorado in Boulder.
