There are just a few more requirements for the Beacon of Light Scholarship that can put money for college in your hands. Ava Onwu, the administrator of the scholarship for the Sigma Gamma Rho sorority said that “This money goes begging, year after year. We barely get any applicants, and as a non-profit, we can’t hold onto it. It’s give it away or give it back. We don’t want to give it back. Let’s help some women get to college.”
Up to $5000 to available to the young woman with a GPA of 3.0 or better, who is a resident of Los Angeles County, and can meet the requirements and fill out the application form available by emailing to [email protected].
