Living near one of the largest malls in America may have its perks for high school students.

A nonprofit is looking to select local high school seniors to help pay for their college tuition. The Simon Youth Foundation is looking for Los Angeles applicants for its scholarship program.

Students living within 50 miles of the Del Amo Fashion Center, The Shops at Montebello and Camarillo Premium Outlets in the Los Angeles area are eligible to apply.

Simon Youth Foundation is a national nonprofit that provides education opportunities for at-risk high school students. Recipients will receive $1,500 to enroll in an accredited college, university, vocational or technical school. Also, an “Award of Excellence” will be given to the top candidate from among the scholarship applicants who represent the nationwide Premium Outlets locations. That student will receive a $10,000 award.

In 2015, the foundation awarded $1.2 million to 300 students nationwide.

Simon Property Group recently renovated the new Del Amo Fashion Center.

The application period has started and will end March 1.

Students can apply at SYF.Org/Scholarships.
