The Westreich Scholarship Through Words Alive

Words Alive Advocates for Reading

Scholarships are available to Adolescent Book Group graduates through the Words Alive Westreich Scholarship Fund.

In its 12th year, the scholarship program is designed to assist students with college tuition and other related expenses. The recipients of the scholarships fall under the purview of the Juvenile Justice department in San Diego country.

Our goal is encouraging the Words Alive Adolescent Book Group participants to continue their education by providing alternative funding opportunities that would not ordinarily be available to them.

By leveling the educational playing field, we hope to break the cycle of poverty by providing our students with the opportunity for higher education. Working in collaboration with other programs, our goal is to provide our students with the entire education package—thus building confidence, self-esteem and to help students discover their educational potential.

To date, we have educated over 60 young people into career fields of their choice.
