The purpose of IEHLC scholarships are to provide regional financial support in the San Bernardino and Riverside Counties to broaden and enhance civic leadership among students enrolled in a college or university. The program’s intent is to offer monetary support to participating college students in a community college, undergraduate or graduate program. These students must be enrolled in a program or have a desired career surrounding one or more of our four pillars: 1) Business, 2) Education, 3) Public Policy or 4) Health. In 2018, IEHLC conducted its first round of Scholarships for students attending several local universities and colleges.
