Scholarships

CHISPA has funded scholarships for students whose families live in CHISPA homes or apartments entering or attending Hartnell College, California State University at Monterey Bay (CSUMB), and to various accredited colleges through the Community Foundation for Monterey County (CFMC) scholarships.

So far, nineteen students have received CHISPA scholarships totaling $24,000.

One additional scholarship is available to residents of CHISPA’s Mountain View Townhomes Apartment Building in Salinas.

This scholarship is funded by the California Community Reinvestment Corporation.   Any resident of Mountain View Townhomes seeking higher education at any college or university is eligible to apply for this scholarship.  For more information on this scholarship, please contact Dana Cleary at CHISPA : 831-757-6251 x 141 or dcleary@chispahousing.org

Each year, a portion of the proceeds from CHISPA’s annual Community Celebration are invested to increase the scholarship endowment. Sponsors of CHISPA’s 2017 Annual Community Celebration are listed here

CHISPA held its last Annual Celebration benefit banquet at CSUMB at OldTown Salinas on Thursday, January 26, 2017. Plan on joining us at this great event next year to benefit scholarships and community services! Further information will be coming to our website in Fall.
