Applications are being accepted through March 4 for the Mountain Communities Scholarship through the MyCoyote portal on the CSUSB website. Applicants must be residents of the greater Lake Arrowhead communities encompassed by the Rim of the World Unified School District.
The program provides free healthcare services to homeless, unsheltered and vulnerable people in the Coachella Valley, as well as engages CSUSB Palm Desert Campus nursing students at all degree levels in clinical healthcare activities.
CSUSB is part of a collaborative effort to advance data science education and create new pathways. A $1.275 grant from the California Learning Lab funds the partnership between CSUSB and seven higher education institutions.
Palm Desert High School took first place at the event, which was facilitated and coordinated by Michael Karp, assistant professor of history at the CSUSB Palm Desert Campus.
