The spring 2015 scholarship application period has come to a close. The Foundation is currently reviewing applications and will announce awardees in early May.
WHAT IS THE PROMISE?
The Ohlone Promise Scholarship pays for required tuition, books and enrollment fees for two years at Ohlone – a value of approximately $3,600. Twenty-five students will receive Ohlone Promise Scholarships in 2015.
WHO IS IT FOR?
High school seniors living in the Tri-City area and planning to attend Ohlone College full-time.
As education costs rise, more and more middle-income families find themselves stretched to pay for college, just missing the threshold for federal financial aid. At the same time, being able to focus on their studies full-time has been shown to significantly benefit a student’s ability to succeed in college.
The Ohlone Promise Scholarship helps address these issues by offering a two year, full-ride* scholarship so that students can focus on their education – rather than their finances.
*The Ohlone Promise pays for required tuition, books, and enrollment fees. Students will be responsible for miscellaneous supplies and optional fees.
