NOW is the time to apply for 2014-2015 bus scholarships to LA area museums

Many museums in the LA area such as the Getty Center, Skirball Cultral Center, and Autry National Center offer bus scholarships to Title I schools. However, space is extremely limited so it is important to apply early to ensure your class will receive one. Many applications opened in early June, so NOW is the time to apply.

Our handy Field Trip Database identifies which museums have scholarships, and information on how to apply. Don’t delay!

ECCLA Senior Scholarship Winners: Where Are They Now

ECCLA has been awarding scholarships to college bound high school seniors for over a decade, although some of them haven’t made their final decision at the time of their award. We thought it would be interesting to see where recent winners are in school now. Our team member Eduardo helped track them down and put together an awesome GoogleMap that shows where our winners go to college. The list is quite impressive…from UCs to Ivy Leagues and beyond! We are so proud!

Here is a link to the map!

ECCLA in Action!

ECCLA puts on a number of different programs every year, from scholarships and essays to teacher recognition. However, our primary mission has always been to connect educators in South-Central Los Angeles with resources throughout the city. Recently we got the chance to do just that, when we helped facilitate the Alliance College Ready Academy #5 field trip to the Grammy Museum!
