The state of California may be on a slow economic rebound, but financing an education is still out of reach for many. With the help of Human Resource departments throughout the state, aspiring scholars from footwear families on the west coast are learning about Two Tens scholarship opportunities and theyre sending in applications.
I am extremely appreciative of this scholarship because it will help immensely with the affordability of my school, said Reimi Akin, a Two Ten scholar attending Pepperdine University in Malibu, California this fall.
Two Tens scholarships are offered yearly to eligible footwear employees and their families through the generosity of Two Tens donors, have helped make college education and professional development opportunities more affordable for students nationwide since the programs inception in 1969. In addition to Two Tens traditional scholarship offerings, the Footwear Warriors Scholarship Fund was established in 2013 to promote vocational and higher education among US military veterans who are employed or returning to work in the footwear industry following a tour of duty.
