The Dorothy and Al Stacey Scholarship has been made possible by a generous bequest from the Alvin B. Stacey Trust. It was Mr. Stacy’s wish that the money received would be used for a scholarship fund specifically to support college students who excel in the studies of science or engineering. Currently, the scholarships are administered by California State University Channel Islands. The number and amount of the scholarships given vary year to year depending on money earned from investments. For the 2021-2022 school year, two students each received $5,000 scholarships to assist them financially as they pursue their degrees. One recipient is a junior with a major in biology. The other recipient is a sophomore who is majoring in mechatronics engineering. For the 2022-2023 school year, four students will be selected to receive $5,000 scholarships.
The Vivian Johnson Memorial Award is funded by a bequest from a former member of Assistance League. She was very fond of the Girls Club/Teen Club and spent many hours working with the elementary and middle school girls after school and during summer camp. The awards of $1,500 each are given annually to two high school graduates who attended the Girls Club/Teen Club for at least two years and are pursuing a college degree or vocational training.
The ALVC Re-Entry Scholarship is the result of the partnership between the Assistance League of Ventura County and the Ventura College Foundation’s Phoenix Program. This award is meant to assist a student who has experienced a hiatus in their education and is looking to either return to college to continue their course of study or to seek out a new path to another career with the completion of a certificate or degree. The Assistance League of Ventura County encourages interested applicants to apply through the Ventura College Foundation.
