The West Contra Costa Public Education Fund (EdFund West) will be nominating eight students for GLOW’s Investment in Success Scholarship with a possibility of six recipients. Recipients must attend either a California Community College (CCC) or California State University (CSU) to be awarded with a four-year scholarship valued at $7,000. Community college students will receive $1,000 for their first year and can renew their award for another year if the minimum requirements are met. Students who then transfer to a public, California four-year college or university can renew their scholarship for two more years if minimum requirements are met. The award amount will increase to $2,500 per year. Summer school and/or a third year of community college support may be available by application to select scholarship recipients.
Students beginning their studies at a CSU will follow a scholarship schedule of $1,000 in each of the first two years and $2,500 in each of the last two years. The scholarship should primarily be used to pay for tuition and any remaining money can be used for books, supplies, or other school-related expenses. Scholarship checks will be sent directly to the student’s college Financial Aid Office
This scholarship is NOT available to students enrolling in a private university, a University of California campus directly out of high school, or a for-profit college or university. Applicants should be aware that their names, high school attended, and intended college will be shared publicly.
Application deadline is March 10th. For more information and to apply, please visit: http://www.tfaforms.com/358735
