Since 1998 we have awarded $259,000 to 116 students.
Although we were unable to hold our annual Awards Ceremony this year due to COVID-19, we awarded educational grants to 5 talented students pursuing artistic majors.
MLKCCSD is proud to support our local budding artists in the San Diego community.
