Transforming Lives by Creating Opportunities starts with education and the Allgire Foundation strives to ensure that people impacted by affordable housing have the resources available to better themselves through education.


Each year, the Allgire Foundation is dedicated to awarding Scholarships to students that are impacted by affordable housing. The Scholarships are for students of high school age or older and can be applied to community colleges, four-year universities, career or vocational certification, GED programs and more. The Scholarships can be used for education related expenses, including tuition and fees, room and board, transportation, books and other school supplies.

Applications will be reviewed and evaluated by a committee established by the Allgire Foundation.

To be eligible for the scholarships, you must be:

1. a San Diego County resident;
2. a high school senior or older;
3. be impacted by affordable housing or be committed to helping others impacted by affordable housing;
4. have a GPA of at least 2.5.

The Mary Ellen Grant Memorial Scholarship is a scholarship for young women who have shown outstanding leadership in service to others.
