Available Scholarships for Adult Learners + Local Students

The Chamber Foundation values the role we have in supporting learners across the county and views the awarding of scholarships as one key contribution to supporting a workforce for businesses in the region. We are proud to introduce a common application that makes it easy for your employees, adult learners, and graduating seniors to apply for financial support to further their learning and professional development.

Continuing your education after high school, seeking certifications and training to further your chosen career, or jumping into a new career pathway takes courage and hard work. Finances shouldn’t be the biggest factor in your decisions. The LA Metro Chamber is proud to offer three different scholarships for learners listed below, and invite you to apply today or recommend an individual deserving of some financial assistance for their learning.
