Alice E. Foster Memorial Scholarship
Alice E. Foster, a member of the Links, Incorporated lost her life to cancer, and to honor her, a memorial scholarship dedicated in her memory is awarded annually. The scholarship focuses on foster children who graduate from high school and attend either a four-year public institution or a two-year community college. Scholarship selection is based upon Alice’s work, and her community interest in supporting this often neglected group of students. Young people who are within the foster system can sometimes be rendered invisible once they have completed high school, and it was Alice’s life work to attempt to correct this issue. As part of Alice’s legacy, San Jose Links members serve as mentors to provide guidance and funds for these students.
The Author’s Luncheon is our signature annual fundraiser.
