For over a decade, the Jessie Klicka Foundation offered a scholarship to a graduating high school senior living in North Park. The North Park Historical Society was proud to coordinate this scholarship. Unfortunately, the Jessie Klicka Foundation will no longer be offering the North Park Scholarship effective in 2014. North Park students are still eligible to apply for the other scholarship offered by the Jessie Klicka Foundation.
For Information on the other scholarship from the Jessie Klicka Foundation contact Katharine Klicka, P.O. Box 1518, Carlsbad, CA 92018 760-822-3434 or firstname.lastname@example.org
