Howard T. Collins Memorial Scholarship Program

The scholarship program, founded in 1993, was created to honor Howard T. Collins, a former, dedicated founding member of the Eden Housing Board of Directors who believed in education and opportunity for all.
Each year, Eden Housing awards our residents with monetary assistance to meet their academic and career goals. To date, we have awarded 410 scholarships totaling $555,000 to residents attending Universities of California at Los Angeles, San Diego, Davis, and Riverside;  California State Universities East Bay and Monterey Bay; San Jose, Sonoma, and San Francisco State Universities; as well as many local community colleges among others.
The stories told in each application are a testament to the positive effects a safe home and services-supported community can have on an individual’s success. Many, if not all, of our recipients are the first in their families to pursue higher education.
