The purpose of the Charitable Trust, in the words of the Trust, is: “…to aid motivated and needy students, at any level of higher education or training, who find it difficult to defray the expenses of attending a school of higher-education or a school of technical or trade training, were it not for some outside means of financial assistance.”
The Charitable Trust is prohibited, and will not discriminate with regards to sex, age, race, national origin, religion, residence, or political affiliation. It was the preference of Mrs. Nylen, though not a requirement, that the recipients be young men or women who have completed high school and are under the age of thirty (30) years. The Boys & Girls Club of Greater Ventura has established a Scholarship Committee to review applications and identify those eligible individuals. Final decisions will be made by the Board of Directors of the Boys & Girls Club of Greater Ventura.
