While the academic Sunflower Scholarships are offered once a year (in the Spring), the Joie de Vivre Sunflower Scholarships are available on an ongoing basis. Among our Joie de Vivre scholarship recipients to date is Escondido 10-year-old Raphael, who was seeking an alternate path from the lure of a gang. With his scholarship, he was able to join a local Young Marines unit, a youth service and education program that promotes character building and leadership. We were also able to spread the joy of running with new shoes for 20 members of the budding running club at San Pasqual Academy, a residential education campus for foster youth.
All applications for Joie de Vivre scholarships must be received at least (3) weeks before the date due for us to process the scholarships.
