The Ohlone College Foundation is proud to announce a new scholarship opportunity for high school seniors living in the Tri-City area and planning to attend Ohlone College. The Ohlone Promise is a four semester/full scholarship ($3600) that will be awarded for the very first time in 2013 to 16 students.
Designed for seniors graduating from high schools within the Ohlone Community College District, The Ohlone Promise will offer an opportunity for college tuition, books and related fees to be fully covered! To be considered, students must attend one of the following schools:
Fremont Unified School District:
American, Irvington, Kennedy, Mission San Jose, Washington, Robertson
Newark Unified School District:
Newark Memorial, Bridgepoint
New Haven Unified School District:
Logan High, Conley Carabello
Applicants should have a minimum 2.5 GPA or demonstrate extenuating circumstances that resulted in a lower GPA. Financial need is not required, but consideration will be given to those who qualify and/or just miss the FAFSA threshold. Reference/recommendation from a high school principal or member of the administrative team also required. Students will also be asked to write a short essay and commit to attending Ohlone College full-time for four semesters.*
The Ohlone Promise Scholarship is sponsored in part through the generous support of Cargill and Janice Futch-Claridge. We thank them for this commitment.
