CLBC Scholarship Recipients Announced

Congratulations to our 2017 CLBC Scholarship Recipients! 

The California Legislative Black Caucus (CLBC) Scholarship Program received a plethora of outstanding applications this year.

Congratulations and best wishes as you move into this exciting, new phase of life.
