Financial Assistance for the Multifaith Living Community
At CA House, we commit to do everything we can to make living at the MLC financially feasible for residents. With this in mind, we offer several options for residents seeking financial assistance. Scholarships are offered on a rolling basis and funding is limited. Residents may apply for more than one form of financial assistance, but may only receive one of the following during any given lease year:
Income Qualified Rent
Each year, CA House may lease up to three Income Qualified units for students who meet Yolo County Very Low Income requirements. The income qualified rent for 2019-2020 is $470/month. In order to be considered, students must turn in their current FAFSA Student Aid Report (SAR) with their housing application.
Each year, CA House may lease up to seven units at a reduced rate for students who meet Yolo County Low Income requirements. Those who qualify will receive a fixed amount off of their rent each month for a single occupancy bedroom. Reduced Rent is not available for double occupancy rooms. In order to be considered, students must turn in their current FAFSA Student Aid Report (SAR) with their housing application.
MLC General Scholarship
Our MLC General Scholarship is our most common form of financial assistance. MLC General Scholarships are awarded on a rolling basis to those who may not be eligible to receive Income Qualified or Reduced Rent, but still request financial assistance. All applicants for this scholarship must turn in their current FAFSA Student Aid Report (SAR) with their housing application in order to be considered.
Kristin Stoneking was a former CA House Campus Minister (2003-2013) and founder of the Multifaith Living Community. The Stoneking Scholarship is available to any MLC Residents who identify as LGBTQ+. All applicants for this scholarship must turn in their current FAFSA Student Aid Report (SAR) with their housing application, and meet for a follow up interview in order to be considered.
Student Leader Scholarship
Students who demonstrate exceptional leadership skills and a passion for the MLC can apply for the Student Leadership Scholarship. In order to receive this scholarship, you must be selected to serve as a MLC Community Advisor. For more information about being a Community Advisor, please visit the Community Life Position page.
