Update: TeenNow’s Teen Parent Scholarships are now accepting applications! Visit our website at http://www.teennowcalifornia.org/ and you can find the application under the “Breaking News” section under the Parent Trainings article.
Did you know that TeenNow California gives out scholarships to teen parents and teen leaders so that they can attend college or vocational school? For 25 years TeenNow California has been giving teen parents hope
through regional and statewide scholarships. And, in 2008, we established a second scholarship to recognize teens who have taken leadership roles in teen pregnancy prevention.
Each year we give out seven $300 scholarships and one grand prize scholarship of $800 to the teen parent with the most inspirational and moving story. Throughout the years it has been our pleasure to see many teen parents attend college or vocational school and get to read about their moving journey through their inspirational essays. Our Teen Leader scholarship goes to one young person in the state, for $500.
In order to assure that these scholarships continue benefiting teen parents and leaders, we need your help! Help us maintain these scholarships as well as increase their size and scope; last year we had 47 applicants and were only able to give out 8 scholarships!
