Alice E. Foster Memorial Scholarship
Alice E. Foster, a member of the Links, Incorporated died of cancer. A memorial scholarship dedicated in her honor is awarded annually. The focus of the scholarship is on foster children who graduate from high school and attend either a four year public institution or a two year community college. The selection is based upon the work of Alice E. Foster and her community interest in this often neglected group of students and their need for funding. Young people who are within the foster system are sometimes rendered invisible once they have completed high school. San Jose Links members serve as mentors to help provide guidance and funds for a group often overlooked or forgotten by the community once they graduate.
The Author’s Luncheon is dedicated to Alice E. Foster.
