They say hindsight is 20-20, but when it comes to preparing for college, it's helpful to know what's coming!
Often, students don’t feel fully prepared for college even after completing their K-12 education and many wish they could go back in time to build skills that would have helped them prepare for the college environment.
This scholarship seeks to support California students and assess how well their grade school education prepared them for college.
Any undergraduate student pursuing a 4-year degree in California may apply for this scholarship.
To apply, tell us if you think your K-12 experience prepared you for college and why you feel that way.
Do you feel your California K-12 experience adequately prepared you for college? Why or why not? Please respond from an academic, social, and emotional perspective.
The application deadline is May 31, 2022. Winners will be announced on Jun 30, 2022.
The scholarship award is $500 per winner.
The winner will be publicly announced on Jun 30, 2022. Prior to the announcement date, we may contact finalists with additional questions about their application. We will work with donors to review all applications according to the scholarship criteria. Winners will be chosen based on the merit of their application.
Award checks will be sent to the financial aid office of the winner's academic institution in their name to be applied to their tuition, and in the name of their institution (depending on the school's requirements). If the award is for a qualified educational non-tuition expense, we will work with the winner directly to distribute the award and make sure it goes towards qualified expenses.
Before we award the scholarship, the winner will be required to confirm their academic enrollment status. Depending on the circumstances, verification of Student ID and/or their most recent transcript will be required.
