Distinguished Young Women of California is part of a national scholarship program that promotes and rewards scholarship, leadership and talent in young women.
College scholarships are awarded at the state level ($26,000 last year) and millions in college-granted scholarships are available ($1 billion nationally). And one representative will advance to the national program in Mobile, Alabama where they give away over $130,000 in cash tuition scholarships.
And it’s FREE to participate!
You must be a junior in high school to participate. Sign up today so you don’t miss out on this life-changing experience!
Our Class of 2022 Program is complete!
