Los Angeles County Bilingual Directors Association



The Los Angeles County Bilingual Association is a non-profit educational association that provides scholarships to students and paraprofessionals who are pursuing a career in education or community service and who want to address the needs of English Learners.

LACBDA has been providing scholarships since 1976. Recipients of scholarships are chosen on the basis of a personal statement explaining why they have chosen to become a teacher or counselor and the importance of bilingual education, as well as financial need. Scholarships are awarded to honorees at an annually held recognition banquet.
