Entries are now being accepted for the Ruben Salazar Memorial Scholarship, named in honor of the late Los Angeles Times journalist and nationally known Chicano activist. Salazar died in August 1970, while covering the National Chicano Moratorium Against the War in Vietnam and the ensuing riot through the streets of East Los Angeles. 

Scholarships are awarded each spring to graduating seniors enrolled at any LAUSD High School, Continuation School or High School Completion Program conducted in an LAUSD Community Adult School. 

In 2024, nine scholarships will be awarded: Eight $500 Scholarships and one $1,000 Legacy Scholarship. Awardees will be invited to attend an award brunch on Saturday, June 1.

See the flyer and application form for more information. Entries must be received by Friday, April 26.
