Helping local students pursue higher education
As part of our Strategic Initiative, Preparing Students to Succeed in the New Economy, the Foundation manages over 40 scholarship funds, which were established by local individuals, families, businesses and organizations. Our scholarships provide tuition assistance and recognition to local students as they strive to achieve a wide range of goals through the pursuit of higher education.
Each scholarship fund has its own unique criteria for selecting recipients, including academic achievement, financial need, educational and career goals, community involvement and ethnic background. Annual scholarship awards range from $500 to $7,000 and may be used for accredited academic and vocational training programs. You can view our scholarships grid detailing criteria for each opportunity here.
The scholarship established by Max and Nadine Dimick has helped Patrick Ma pursue his dreams.
Once you create an account in our online scholarships system, you will be asked to complete a general application. Based upon your answers, the system will recommend scholarship opportunities that you may be eligible to apply for.
The scholarship application period for the 2018/2019 academic year is now closed. Scholarships for the 2019/2020 academic year will be available the first week of December, 2018. Please check back then to apply.
If you are a student seeking scholarships, your high school counselor and college financial aid office will also have information about financial aid, community scholarships and student loans. If you have not already done so, please visit the financial aid or counseling office at your campus.
If you are having trouble accessing the online application or you would like more information about Foundation scholarships, please contact Tina Bryce at (916) 921-7723 ext. 2011 or email at email@example.com.
