On June 24, 2015, scholarships were officially bestowed upon 27 outstanding students, including four from the Ramona Gardens housing development. For the past 12 years, the Housing Authority of the City of Los Angeles has sponsored the annual scholarships, but beginning in 2014, the Hollenbeck Community Safety Partnership program joined the effort and began contributing funds.
To be eligible, students had to submit an essay explaining why they should receive a scholarship, and this year’s recipient group was the largest ever. Many of the students have already been accepted to four-year universities.
