YouthScholarship The City of West Hollywood created the West Hollywood Youth Scholarship Program in 2007. The program recognizes the importance of education to our community and encourages/supports local students interested in pursuing their education beyond high school.

The Youth Scholarship program helps address the rising costs of post-secondary education for students and their families while encouraging young people to perform community service. $2,000 scholarships are awarded to West Hollywood students that have met the eligibility criteria including 150 hours of community service. The scholarship money can be used for any expense incurred in pursuing education at an accredited college, university or trade/vocational school.

The Youth Scholarship Program is one the first municipal government sponsored scholarship programs of its kind in the country. The program is sponsored by the City of West Hollywood, but scholarship funds come entirely from individual and community donations. 40 youth scholarships have been awarded since the program began in 2007.
