Destiny Scholarship

An annual college scholarship, up to $20,000, is awarded to an exceptional Santa Fe Springs graduating senior.

The mission of the Destiny Scholarship is to provide an opportunity to change a student's direction in life, or their 'destiny'.

The Scholarship Committee is comprised of the Youth Enrichment Fund Board of Directors and Chamber members interested in the youth of Santa Fe Springs. If you are interested in serving on the Scholarship Committee, please call the Santa Fe Springs Chamber at (562) 944-1616 or send e-mail.

The Powell Grant

The grant was established in honor of long-time City Manager Donald Powell. The $2,500 annual grant recognizes an individual's talent and interest in a career in the arts, including but not limited to students studying music, drawing, writing, drama and graphic arts. The annual award is presented to a select Santa Fe Springs high school senior or resident currently attending college, art academy or trade school.
