Las Positas College Foundation and Pedrozzi Foundation Partner for Veterans Scholarships
The Las Positas College Foundation and the Mario Pedrozzi Scholarship Foundation are joining hands to serve our military veterans who have served our country.
The Las Positas College Foundation will raise $10,000 in scholarships and the Mario Pedrozzi Scholarship Foundation is matching that amount, bringing potential veteran scholarship funding to $20,000. Both foundations invite the community to pitch in and increase that amount for veterans who wish to pursue their education.
Scholarships are available to all veterans and active duty military personnel. Pedrozzi scholarships are available only to veterans and active duty military personnel who graduated from an accredited Livermore high school.
"We strongly encourage all eligible veterans to apply for these scholarships," says Todd Steffan, Las Positas College Veterans First Coordinator. On behalf of Veterans First, Steffan expressed gratitude to both foundations for their generous support of veterans.To contact Todd:
