Congratulations EAH Housing Scholarship Recipients

17 08 2015

Since 1968, EAH Housing has grown into one of the largest and most respected nonprofit housing development in the western United States. Guided by their commitment to create social justice and enhancing communities through affordable housing, EAH Housing currently serves over 20,000 families, students, people with disabilities, elderly, and the homeless in 111 properties throughout California and Hawaii.

In 2012, EAH Housing launched the EAH Housing Scholarship Fund, a scholarship to support the 7,000 children and teenagers living in EAH Housing properties as they prepare for higher education and life on their own. The scholarship is funded through the generosity of the EAH Board of Directors, EAH staff, and Rebecca Wood Watkin, the late affordable housing advocate.

This year, EAH Housing awarded scholarships to three Hawaii students, Victor Nhieu, Ying Yi Li, and Yueqing Lin.
