College-bound Vallejo kids have until Friday to apply for a new scholarship funded by the Participatory Budgeting process.
The project, called College Bound Vallejo, was approved and funded last year and is a partnership between the city, the Vallejo City Unified School District and the Willie B. Adkins program.
About 45 youth have applied so far, but there is opportunity for at least another 30 to step up, a city employee said.
Albert Mayzeles said the program is a great opportunity for Vallejo youth. If awarded a scholarship, the recipient get $4,000 over two years. The recipients also must put in 150 hours of service.
