Scholarship Application

Parkside EDC seeks to assist high school college-bound students who have financial needs due to family circumstances or whose GPA is in the median range. 

The application must be completed with all reference letters, information pages, and original school transcript (transcripts can also be emailed to attached and a copy. 

Thank you for your participation in the Parkside Economic Development  Corporation’s 2024 Scholarship Program. Our scholarships are available  for students graduating from high school who plan to attend a four year  college, community college, or other specialty programs where tuition is  needed to attend. We award supplementary funds towards college and  trade school education. All funds are paid directly to the institution.

Our scholarships are open to all students who meet the geographic and application criteria. However, we make an effort to assist students entering four year colleges and universities who have special financial needs due to family circumstances and/or those who’s GPA is in the median range, yet are highly motivated to obtain a college degree.

Our Trade School and Jr.  College assistance is designed for students with specific career goals  that don’t necessarily require a four year degree. Jr. College and Trade School scholarship recipients are eligible to re-apply for four year assistance if they desire to expand their post secondary education. 

The application deadline is Saturday, March 15, 2024- No exceptions. 

The application must be completed with 3 reference letters (can be submitted later), and original school transcript (can be submitted later). Late applications will not be considered. Please contact Parkside EDC 323-296-6694 or email  if you have any questions
