The 2019 scholarship application is now open.
Applications are due no later than February 1, 2019.
The scholarships are in memory of Alisa, who established a legacy of helping and caring for people because she believed "that is what we were put on earth to do”. The scholarships are awarded to youth who demonstrate the same spirit of caring through service to others.
Application packages are reviewed by a selection committee. Applicants will be notified in early March, 2019 of the results. Recipients will be presented the scholarships at the gala on March 24.
For the first time, graduating high school seniors from the Colorado Springs area - El Paso and Teller Counties - are eligible to apply. Up to 2 scholarships will be awarded to Colorado students. There will be a separate awards celebration for Colorado Springs recipients.
Alisa's Angels is an equal opportunity organization:
