Your generous and ongoing financial support has enabled The Desert Outreach Foundation to continue our scholarship program, with now over $290,000 in scholarship awards since the Foundation's beginning.
The Desert Outreach Foundation employs a formal, multi-week review process to determine who receives the scholarships. There are five rating factors used to rank the applicants: Financial Need, Scholastic Achievement, Community Service, Essay, and Personal Interview. Financial Need is given the highest priority in the rating process.
"The Scholarship Awards event was not only a way to honor the scholars but also an opportunity for us to acknowledge and thank those individuals who have significantly contributed to the Foundation and allow them to see, first-hand, how their contributions are helping others in need", said Jack Williams, President of the Desert Outreach Foundation's Board of Directors.
