The Shops at Montebello to Award Scholarships for Higher Education

The Shops at Montebello is seeking applicants for its 2015 scholarship awards program, meant to recognize graduating seniors from the Montebello Unified School District as they continue their education.


Applications are currently available in high school counselor’s offices throughout the school district, and completed applications are due on Friday, May 1, no later than 2 p.m. to their high school counselor.


“The Shops at Montebello loves to support our local youth, especially in their pursuit of higher education and career aspirations,” said Marida Petitjean, Director of Marketing and Business Development at The Shops at Montebello.


The Shops at Montebello’s Scholarship Awards recognizes local seniors in their pursuit of continuing their education at a 4-year college, community college or vocational school. The scholarship program was created in 1985, when the center opened, as a way to assist local students in recognizing their educational goals and to provide initial monetary support to achieve those goals.


Candidates will be evaluated on criteria including a combination of academic accomplishments, work experience, involvement in the community and essay content detailing why it is important to further their educational path after high school. In addition to the completed application form, applicants must meet the following requirements:


  • Be a graduating senior from the Montebello Unified School District and continuing on with their education (4 year college, community college or vocational school).
  • Submit 2 letters of recommendation
  • Submit a copy of their current school transcript
  • Submit the completed application to their high school counselor


Scholarship funds will be awarded upon official verification of enrollment in a post-secondary educational program. The verification needs to be brought to The Shops at Montebello Management Office, as they will handle the distribution of funds.  For questions, call 323 722-1776.
