The Southern California Relocation Council is excited to announce our scholarship program for current high school seniors, or current college/university undergrads, who have relocated to Southern California. We understand that relocating can have a profound impact on an individual's life, and we want to recognize and support those who have navigated these changes while maintaining academic excellence and involvement in extracurricular activities.

We are proud to offer a one-time award of $3,500 for each scholarship, which will be presented to two area high school seniors, or current college/university undergrads. This award will be sent directly to the college or university the student will be attending, to assist with tuition or other applicable expenses.

To be eligible, applicants must meet the following requirements:

  • Currently be a senior in good standing in a greater Southern California area high school. Southern California is deemed as the counties of Imperial, Kern, Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino, San Diego, Santa Barbara, San Luis Obispo and Ventura counties.

  • Have previously relocated and changed schools due to this relocation (need not be a job-related move and can include asylum seeking situations). For purposes of this scholarship, relocation is considered moving more than 50 miles away from their home or current place of residence, either indefinitely or for a period of time longer than one year.

  • Have a cumulative minimum grade point average of 3.0 on a scale of 4.0 (or equivalent achievement on a different scale).

The scholarship winner will be selected based on the strength of their total completed application, which includes academic performance, extracurricular activities, and an essay addressing the impact relocation has had on their life and the impactful skills or life experiences developed as a result of the relocation.

Applications must be submitted no later than Friday, April 19th 2024. The scholarship winner may be asked to present their essay in person at the SCRC summer conference in August, or at a recorded video conference meeting. The scholarship will be announced at the SCRC Summer Conference.
