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 2016 Annual Community Celebration are listed here
